NEW SHARON —  Students at Cape Cod Hill School are budding gardeners. They had the opportunity to plant garlic cloves under the supervision of Dave Fuller of the Franklin County Extension Office.

Kindergarten through third grade students listened to a brief presentation by Fuller, then did a hands-on activity.

The educational Heirloom Seed Project vegetable garden is a new addition to the school’s curriculum. The SOS (Save Our Seeds) grant is made possible by donations.

Many students were excited to learn that garlic is actually in the onion family, have the opportunity to taste and learn how and when to plant bulbs. Each student received a garlic clove to bring home and plant.
