Watch Our Garden Grow!

The time has come to take this bare and unloved patch of SVA grounds and turn it into our beautiful “Discovery Garden.” We have purchased the plants and designed a garden to be enjoyable and educational for all.  It will include  native plants,  pollinator plants, and a sensory section full of aromatic and touchable plants.

The SkyView AeroGardens Spring 2020
SkyView Academy borrowed two AeroGardens from the DCSD media center. We started our gardens in the office before spring break with the intention of letting the children watch them grow, but since we are at home, we are posting the pictures here so that you can see how well they are growing.  For ninety days we get the opportunity to watch these gardens grow from seed to full harvest.  We weren’t sure what to expect but it sure has been fun watching these plants grow!  

Our AeroGardens are growing six herbs: mint, curly parsley, Genovese basil, thyme, Thai basil, and dill. Watch the progress from the past four weeks here.
