Centsational Girl is having a “Look What I Planted” party and I’m cheating just a bit. Because this post isn’t about what I planted, but what school children planted instead.
My husband and I stumbled on this charming garden of raised beds while in the Brookside neighborhood of Kansas City last weekend.
The plants were all spring varieties, like peas, herbs, and this lettuce.
I checked the website of the school and discovered that the kids did, indeed, do the planting.
Some of the beds were empty and I’m wondering if they’ll contain summer veggies later in the season.
I loved this bed of herbs.
We discovered the garden because it was right next to an art fair we were at, the Brookside Art Fair.
The Brookside Art Fair is held every Spring but this was our first time attending. I loved the neighborhood feel of it.
There were food stands, music, and lots of kids and dogs, which made it especially fun.
But the highlight for me was this unexpected garden in the middle of the city.
I love the look of raised beds, do you? Have you ever gardened with them?Note: I'm no longer adding new posts to The Family CEO. I am, however, writing at Creating This Life, where we talk about home, books, travel, and other life stuff.
