Wedgwood Elementary School Garden


I was walking in my old neighborhood this week end and walked by my son’s former elementary school, Wedgwood, in Seattle. They have a wonderful school garden. In addition to a small green house, there are fruits and vegetables as well as native plants. The garden sits along the fence that marks the edge of the school property on the north side of the playground. It is skinny, but very long, maybe a couple of hundred feet or so. It looks like the entire school utilizes it. It is very well organized and well labeled. I was glad to see an area of the garden designated for growing food for the local food bank. There was extensive composting going on as well. I wish it had been in existence when my son was attending school there!
