It’s February, and for students (age 4 years – 8th grade) at Ascension Lutheran School, that means it’s the beginning of tomato season! This week, students will plant over 20 varieties of tomato seeds. Over the coming months, they will be tending to the over 1000 seedlings, creating business plans, writing and drawing about tomatoes, and making preparations for the upcoming student-led tomato seedling sale. The sale teaches students how to be entrepreneurs while enjoying time in the Organic Teaching Garden and learning life-long skills of gardening.
