Workshop: Bean Garden
Students have the opportunity to plant an edible garden with a focus on beans, peas, and other fast-growing vegetables. This allows them to start the garden in early March and harvest before the end of the school year. Mathematics can be integrated into the planning of the garden by asking students to determine area of the garden, volume of soil required based on the area and desired depth, mass of soil required based on density, mass of soil and compost based on required ratio, etc.
