setting up a Middle School Garden
Hello everyone. I'm setting up a Middle School garden in Palo Alto, California. I'm wondering about ways to get middle schoolers interested in gardening. Right now I'm thinking about setting up 6 3x3 raised beds, and splitting them up among the interested kids. (This is a club, meaning only kids who are interested come, aftre school, one day a week.) I do double-digging in my own garden -- should I do that with them? Basically, I'm just looking for people who have had some experiences with this sort of thing, what worked, what didn't work, etc.
Thanks a lot.
