It’s been a few months since the inauguration of our new rainwater catchment system, which The Watershed Project helped us to build. Finally, after a few weeks of well-needed rain this past March and April, we have a barrel that’s about 2/3 full. Our students, including our kindergarteners today, have been using the rainwater and watering cans to water our garden this Spring. Creative play also happens during watering time. A few kinders were pretending that they were “putting out fires!” It has been a great educational tool in the garden to teach students about water conservation and recycling water. Here are some photos from today’s watering as well as from our ribbon cutting ceremony in the Fall.
