Mattey’s Garden celebrated its 20th birthday with lots of cool activities! Our PTA provided rocks from Coleman’s Nursery for all of our classes to paint positive phrases and garden pictures on. The First Grade classes hosted families in the garden during where Mrs. Louann Martin read The Three Sisters to classes to teach about the traditional planting of corn, bean, and squash. First graders and families then got to plant each of these vegetables with the master gardeners, explore the garden & pond areas, look at the new additions to the alphabet garden, and find the rocks we painted as part of the PTA project to celebrate Mattey’s Garden’s birthday. Then, on the day of our final celebration, there was a ribbon cutting with Mrs. Ford, PTA members, and several other other important members of the community. What a wonderful way to celebrate the garden we all love so much!
