Columbine Elementary School was the site of crunching leaves, dirt and rolling wheelbarrows filled with compost Saturday.
The laughter and excitement spread from children and teachers to parents and community members as they all worked together to close the Boulder school’s garden for the season and celebrate the year’s harvest.
It seemed like more work to keep the kids away from the “grownup tools” than preparing the garden’s soil. Dozens of children ran around, pulling up old plants and eating garden potluck snacks.
“It’s just a great community building tool,” said Bryce Brown, founder of the local nonprofit Growe Foundation.
