The organic garden near the entry to Wellesley’s Sprague Elementary School is looking robust this summer with tomatoes and other fruits/vegetables emerging.
The garden, a ribbon-cutting for which was held in late June as the school year ended, is designed to fit in with a number of lessons kids are being taught in class. For example, classes studying bugs might plant flowers that attract insects while those studying healthy eating might plant certain fruits or vegetables. Sprague has raised funds for the garden by selling steppingstones designed by students.
Separately, Wellesley Congregational (Village) Church in Wellesley Square has established a veggie garden of its own on Church Street. The garden is tended by volunteers and the produce is being donated to the Wellesley Food Pantry, as is food from the Sprague gardens.
