At Pikeville Elementary we have an exciting project where we are learning all about fall & winter gardening so we can have fresh vegitables all year long!

We have raised beds where in the fall and winter we grow things like

kale, broccoli, pok choy, carrots, radishes, and turnips! We planted our seeds in mid-August when school started and we are can harvest food for salads in our school cafeteria, cooking lessons and more all the way through February and then we will begin preparing for our spring planting!

We keep everything growing in the cold winter months, once temperatures drop below 27 degrees (F) by covering our raised beds with Gro-Guard or Agribond fabric, creating low-tunnels. When temperatures drop into the teens we will add an additional layer of thicker fabric to keep our plants warm! Under our two layers of fabric it can be 10 to 12 degrees warmer inside the low tunnel.
