Over the past couple of school years BES Teachers Nicole Larsen and Erin Hoffman have partnered with Matt Stonecipher and Bonnie Plants to provide this "fruitful" learning experience to BES students.  Bonnie Plants donates all plants and supplies for the Garden Project, and Mrs. Larsen and Mrs. Hoffman lead students in preparing, planting, maintaining, and harvesting the bounty it provides.  Students planted tomatoes, green peppers, strawberries, and gourds in this year's garden.  Through the project students are able to observe and collect data on the life cycle of the different plants, better understand the processes by which our food is produced, and enjoy the fruits of their labor at the end.  Pictured are some of Mrs. Larson's fourth and fifth grade students taking care of the garden and harvesting some of its produce.
