Where Young Minds Blossom

The Marshall Garden Crew has been hard at work all year in The Learning Garden and the results are really showing this spring. Colorful tulips now decorate the borders of the raised beds that are home to many varieties of flowers, vegetables and herbs. Composting—which gives the plants valuable nutrition—is also underway. The students get to see firsthand how each season brings new growth as the plantings go in and out of season. See if you can guess what favorite fruit will be coming into season next!

The Learning Garden, funded by the Marshall PTA, is available to Marshall teachers to use in conjunction with lesson plans. All of this is made possible by our Garden Crew led by parent volunteers Melanie Conklin and Karen Palaitis. To learn more or get involved this year or next, please email
