We had helpers to get the 2015 Basin’s Backyard Garden planted! First graders from Highland Acres Elementary got some dirt under their nails, right along with Basin Electric employees.
Michaela Weigel, Highland Acres first grade teacher, saw that Basin Electric took care of a garden last year, and she decided to give us a call. The students will be planting their own garden soon, and will harvest it next school year when they’re second graders.
A cute note: as soon as one of the students found a worm, they all wanted to find worms and put them in the holes with the crops. They wanted to keep the worms together with their families.
