Food Fighters Visit the Bees

Our high school interns for the summer, students from the Food Fighters/Garden Club at BHS, have been working in the gardens: planting, harvesting, and weeding, to help keep everything in great condition for when students return at the end of summer. On Thursday, the group weeded the back garden and planted squash starts in the newly formed beds. Afterward, we trekked over to Rock Point School  to check-in on the beehive that Burlington School Food Project adopted. We thought it might be time to harvest the honey, but, while some of the neighboring hives were ready, ours has a few weeks to go still.

Class 13 July 16, 2013: Garden work and discussion of GMOs

Today the students worked in the BHS gardens and then came up with a list of questions about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and then chose four of the questions to research in the computer lab.
