Many years ago, imaginative Morgan Academy students created a magical world called “Fairy Town.” In this mystical village, one will see homes, hospitals, stores, and financial institutions for the fairy folk of Morgan Academy. Today, as part of our gardening program, students and parents built new fairy houses and fairy vehicles. Much fun was had by all.

Enjoying the Fruits of our Labor

It was an excellent gardening day at Morgan Academy! Students, parents, and teachers picked lettuce, spinach, arugula, and radishes for tasty salads. Many of the flowers and herbs planted today (zinnias, sun flowers, marigolds, portulaca, basil, and dill, just to name a few) were started from seeds by our students. Raised beds were prepared, the potatoes and peas were cared for, a new compost bin was crafted, and a lovely bed of impatiens was planted by the kids.  We were very dirty, and we loved it! Today was quite wonderful!
