Last Wednesday, Rosewood’s 1st graders were treated to a special science class in the school garden. Daniella York brought several banana plants, including two small off-shoots called “pups”, to the garden and taught the children how banana plants grow, produce fruit and produce the next generation of plants.

Each of the classes planted their own banana plants in the garden, along the front fence, which will allow everyone at the school to watch their growth throughout the school year. We expect the plants to bear fruit in roughly one year.

Special thanks to the parents who volunteered and helped out in the garden for our special science classes.

Stay tuned for more garden news and information on upcoming events.
