Building a school garden - one raised bed at a time!

Today was our raised bed building event at the school garden. It was a gorgeous day with perfect weather and we had a fantastic turnout of volunteers!

We had so many volunteers that we finished constructing all the beds in an hour!

The children seemed excited to have a hand in assembling the beds, especially when we asked, "who wants to use a power tool?" The raised bed system worked out very well and went together easily. The children were able to put it together themselves with very little adult help and seemed thrilled to have a hand in creating our school garden! We are very grateful for the amount of school and community support we are getting with this project.

You can read more about the event on our School Garden blog!

Several people were interested in building the raised bed boxes to use in their own gardens so I decided to make the plans available. You can download them for free from my Project Plans page on my website if you wish to build some raised garden beds for yourself!
