George Ward Kindergartners Learn All About Planting Seeds

Submitted photo Local farmer and Randolph County Schools bus driver Ed Daniels took time out of his busy schedule to present to Mrs. Julie Kalar’s kindergarten class at George Ward Elementary. Mr. Daniels talked to the students about forest farming and raising ginseng and goldenseal. After learning how to properly plant seeds, all the students had a chance to practice and work with Mr. Daniels one-on-one. Students were also given seeds to take home. Mr. Daniels also worked with the local 4-H and Cloverbud groups that meet regularly afterschool at George Ward. Mrs. Kalar remarked, ‘It was such a fantastic opportunity for our students to work with Ed. They all love him as bus driver, and it was neat for them to see what else he does and learn something from him about farming and planting.’
