To transplant simply separate
each section of the egg carton,
plant the carton and seedling directly into the soil.  The carton will compost while the roots grow deep into the earth.

Mist the seeds in the classroom to keep them moist.  Water the roots of the seedlings.

 Loring School Teachers, 

As the sun rises and grows stronger we are starting to plan for this year's garden. We encourage you to use the garden as an extension of your classrooms.

We will offer Garden Days each Monday, beginning April 12th through May 24th.  Kid Cook Volunteers will be in the garden between 10:00 and 3:00 for classroom activities.  Third, fourth and fifth grade students are invited to stay after-school each of these days to work with us in the garden between 3:00 and 5:00.  These students will need to sign up with their teachers.

If you would like us to volunteer in your classrooms
contact us at

We would be happy to  develop and share ideas for garden projects that will help sow the seeds in the Loring Schoolyard Garden.
Garden Days
April 12th, 19th, and 26th
May 3rd, 17th and 24th

Family Day in the Garden
Monday, May 10th between 10:00 and 3:00.
Encourage your students to invite their family to help us in the garden.  We will work together and share a Picnic Lunch.

Spring is the Time to Plant
This season plant new seeds for learning.
Kids Cook can provide the seeds, egg cartons, lesson ideas and follow-up work sheets.

When seeds are planted, introduce your students to the parts of a seed.  Ask about what plants need to grow, what part of the plant do we eat?

We can connect your classroom to garden and farm related field trips and would love to cook from the garden with your classes.

Enjoy Spring,
