Companions in planting and learning

April Martin

WYG’s School Garden Coordinator Bethany Hanna Pokress taught Kindergarteners at Mary McLeod Bethune PCS about the benefits of companion planting by planting a Three Sisters garden in Bethune’s outdoor learning garden.

Students planted corn, bean and squash seeds in the three large containers at the entrance of the school. Stay tuned for photos and updates on our partner schools’ burgeoning garden beds!
