Flurry of fingers plant Basin’s Backyard Garden

In about 45 minutes, Basin’s Backyard Garden went from freshly tilled soil to fully-planted garden.

Thirty-nine first and second graders from Highland Acres Elementary School in Bismarck, ND, helped garden volunteers plant the garden on May 26.

While one class was planting, the other got to paint pictures with fruits and vegetables and plant seeds in cups to take home.

Many thanks to the dedicated volunteers who not only took the time to help prepare and plant, but also patiently helped the kids learn a little more about how their food grows.

Make sure to follow our progress all summer at #basingarden!
