Our amazing 8th grade class at SYV Charter School is determined to find out everything there is to know about our soil. We have a big field where we have had a pumpkin patch the past two years. Our first year was incredible – lots and lots of pumpkins. The second year, hardly any pumpkins grew.
So we are doing soil tests, cover crops, and all kinds of fun and important experiments. Also collecting data about the historical use of the field, weather info, and learning about what makes healthy soil!
