Here at CWS, we get the children (all age groups) involved with gardening. When we say involved, we mean it. The children have planted and cared for all the plants on the playground. The children learn how to start plants from seeds, transplant seedlings, water , prune the plants (teacher supervised), and pick the fruits of their labor.
The children grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs year round. We currently have bananas,collard greens, oregano, and thyme to name a few. For more information on our fruit, herb, and vegetable gardens please click here.
A butterfly garden has been introduced to the playground so that the children can watch the metamorphosis of caterpillars into butterflies. We have completed several indoor metamorphosis projects using an empty aquarium. More details on the project can be seen here. The garden also gives us beautiful flowers that we have used for table decorations around the school.
