Wingate Elementary first grade students were excited to see what had happened over the summer to the garden they had helped to plant this past spring. Gourds, pumpkins, zinnias, and VERY LARGE sunflowers were some of the plants they discovered growing in the Wingate Elementary garden. The items in the garden will be harvested soon, so that high school students can clean up the debris during Day of Caring. What will happen to the harvested crops? Involving the community by creating fall decorations for the Eagle Valley Personal Care Home residents, pressing flowers, making baked goods from the pumpkins, and using the items during Wingate Elementary Fall Festival activities are some of the ideas being discussed. The Wingate Elementary Garden was started with a $3,000 Highmark Healthy High 5 Grant. BEA Day of Caring participants have also helped with its creation over the past two years.
