In the Garden, for a couple of weeks, the middle schoolers have been digging out plants to make a seating place for the 5th graders. I went and interviewed a couple of 6th graders I believe and last time in the garden they were pulling out plants, and weeds, and also picking up some concrete blocks to get out of them. When I went to interview them they said that there was this one plant that was specifically hard to pull out because its roots were in the ground pretty deep and the plant seemed that it was in there for a couple of years but in the end, they pulled it out of the ground and put it somewhere. It also took them about the whole period to get that one plant out. The other half of the 6th graders were doing some other things than pulling out plants.
