When we went to Carr Garden, Beth Choate met us and introduced herself. After a few games, she split us up into pairs and gave each pair a map of the garden. Our task was to try to find our way around the garden and attempt to identify each vegetable planted in the raised beds. After guessing and checking our answers, she explained a little about the compost bin in the garden. Then, we got to harvest the beets. After explaining about where to cut the vegetable off from the stem, she put a few of us in charge of harvesting, a few of us in charge of cutting, and a few of us in charge of putting the stems and leaves into the compost bin.
