Jefferson students learning through gardening

Fourth-grade teacher Julie Bassett and her students, along with parent volunteers, recently harvested, weighed and sampled watermelons from the Jefferson Elementary School Community Garden in DeKalb. These students planted the watermelon seeds as third-graders and have helped tend the garden. Families cared for the garden over the summer and have been able to harvest a variety of vegetables, herbs and berries. The garden is supported through student-led fundraising efforts – students grow and sell vegetable and flower starts to family and community members in May. More than 220 Jefferson students were engaged in garden activities last spring, and the school will continue to grow that number this fall.
