The Pre-1st through 3rd grade classes enjoyed a real treat on Monday with a visit from Good Food for Good People. Ensworth has partnered with this Nashville-based Food Advocacy Organization to help teach our students about gardening and the need to support our local economy. This spring, Ensworth installed three permanent learning gardens throughout the campus green spaces: Pre-First classroom hallway, one near the Middle School Athletic Fields (shaped appropriately like a big “E”) and a 12-bed garden near the Science Wing of EHS.
The pre-1st garden is already flourishing with marigolds and basil. The pre-1st students planted things like spinach and okra.
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students had their own garden where they planted Kale, lettuce and cabbage seeds.
The goal is to center learning about food in these outdoor classrooms and also incorporate the food into the Ensworth lunch menus.
