Meet Bernice

Meet Bernice the butternut squash who has been helping to teach our Junior children all about plant lifecycles this week.

We read about Bernice in the picture book Sophie's Squash by Pat Zietlow. It's a funny and sweet book about a girl who really likes vegetables. We talked about how plants grow and what they need.

We also sang One Seed by Lairie Berkner. It's got a great enviro message:

Lastly each Junior class weeded, composted, dug in the soil and planted a winter vegetable in the edible gardens.

We planted:
- kale
- peas
- broccoli
- cabbage
- pak choy
And we even planted butternut squash, so Bernice will have more friends.

We can't wait to watch them all grow and eat them!
