Communities on our Farm

Fall is the time of the year when the Monarchs come through Dallas on their way to Mexico for the winter. Since we planted many of their favorite host plants, we have seen a lot of them over the past month. During this migration, we spotted a tagged monarch from the University of Kansas. They have a Monarch data collection program, and one of our winged visitors had a website and phone number placed on its wing. We were able to gather some real time data for this program. The kids loved chasing them around the farm and looking for tags. While we were learning about our Monarchs, we spotted many other garden champions along the way. It was quite exciting times on the farm. Ask the kids about it. They will have a lot to report.

Farm learning is the best learning!
