It has been a busy last week of school at Cove Creek! There have been musicals, 8th grade promotions, class outings, field day events, end of year parties, parent meetings and retirement celebrations for our principal, Mr. Toby Cone. The school garden has also been seeing a lot of action with many classes getting out to their vegetable patch to water their plants, weed, or do some last minute planting of summer crops. Mrs. Pfister's class for example, harvested some kale which was ready, and Mrs. Warren and Mrs. Hall's third graders planted potatoes and tomatoes in their raised beds.
We also had some help in the garden from Mr. Johnell Hunter, a Master Gardener from Winston Salem who was visiting with Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture.
Christina Fasanello, who will be our intern for the summer, also stopped by to join in the gardening fun. Christina is a sustainable development major at AppState and will be helping to take care of our garden while school is on break for the summer. She is part of a group of students doing an internship with Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture and will be helping out at different school and community gardens in the area.

On Tuesday May 30th we dedicated the garden to Mr. Cone with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and surprise unveiling of the amazing mosaic sign created by Angela McMann. It was quite a week indeed!
