Miss McKell Murdock's 1st grade class planted seeds and plants in the brand new Art City Garden Friday May 21st. This garden will be a resource to students at Art City to study many different content areas. This year students measured the area, designed the layout, learned about different plants, designed and created signs, and actually planted seeds and plants. The students look forward to the Fall when they can reap the rewards of their harvest. Thank you to Woodstuff, Diamond's Greenhouse and Eagle scout, Bradely Borget, for donating soil, plants and labor.
