Kudos to Ms. Susan Eckert, MHS science teacher, and her STEM colleagues for helping MHS students in the STEM program create our newest DIGS school garden.
They are creating 3 small raised beds outside the 9th grade Annex cafeteria. The STEM students are building the beds themselves, will grow various vegetables, and learn about the science of gardening.
As part of their studies they are also planting native flowers and shrubs in Rand Park to attract pollinators. It looks fabulous and will improve both the aesthetics, and the health of the ecosystem on the park grounds.
Well done, STEM students! We’ll keep you posted on STEM garden activities – there are great things to come.
