ACAD Students Build Pest-Proof Garden Beds

Ninth grade students in ACAD CORE 1 have been building small raised beds with hand tools. Students have been using layout tools such as a speed square and measuring tape to measure cedar planks, cutting them to size with hand saws and attaching them with hammer and deck nails. Students have cut and stapled hard wear cloth to the underside of the beds to stop tunneling critters from feeding on the plants roots, and finally students burned the IDEA brand into the beds.
