6th Grade Garden
Our 6 th Grade garden has been achieved through tons of hard work and time. But the first seed was planted during the beginning of school year, when our 6 th Grade class read the book Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. Seedfolks is a story told through different people’s perspectives about how a garden brought the entire community together. Each character had their own story, culture, or race, but they all came together to plant a garden in an abandoned plot where people enjoyed dumping their trash. Our class was so intrigued by the book that we wrote a sequel too. Most of all, though, it gave us the wonderful idea for our garden. Amazingly, the garden was created just by us 6 th Graders and a lot of support from our parents and other adults in our parish or community. We all had different focus groups and together we were able transform an idea into a full scale operation. We have all worked very hard on this garden and are very anxious to enjoy it. One Sunday, we all got together and constructed the garden. First we put in the wood, the dirt, and finally the plants. It was tiring at some parts, but we finally made it through all the problems like in Seedfolks. Paul Fleischman thought he was writing a fictional book for kids like us to enjoy reading, but, really, he planted the seeds for our very own parish garden.
