Students in Marybeth Pacilio and Marcelle Langendal’s class are continuing to work on their classroom natural history museum, researching a wide variety of topics including local crustaceans, rabbits, tapirs, elephants, bush babies, cobras and more. The class conducted additional research at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton this week.
Students in Arjun Achuthan’s class, along with Jon Snow and Sarah Sander, Hayground’s artist and scientist in residence, visited Scott Chaskey at Quail Hill Farm. While there, they helped to plant this year’s potato crop. Back at school, students are planting potatoes in one of the campus’s two gardens.
Everyone is working in the gardens during and after school, also in the greenhouse, starting seedlings which will soon be moved outdoors. A wide variety of lettuces, greens, carrots, beets, peas, potatoes, squash, tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers and much more will soon be filling the beds in the gardens.
