It’s now a cold January day in 2018 and the STEAM garden is still going strong. This winter we will be taking a look at how the productive the garden is, what is needs to improve, and prepare to plant a new batch of crops. The fact that we can grow nearly anything year-round is proving to be beneficial on a variety of levels.
The STEAM garden was nominated for an impact award last fall. The following video was produced to introduce the garden to the judges. Without any dialog, the video attempts to illustrate the social emotional learning benefits and how it functions mechanically.
A little pepper
To date, we’ve successfully grown a single pepper. My junior staff, Daniel claimed it as his own and when it’s ready he plans to eat it. Daniel left just before the New Year to visit family in Texas and this little pepper has surprised us by changing colors this week. Hopefully Daniel returns soon because I think this pepper will be ready to eat very soon.
