Gifts From The Garden
During the holiday season, our garden work slows down, but our learning continues to grow. Throughout the year, our farmers collect seeds from spent flowers, overgrown okra or when milkweed seeds explode. The kids were reminded about how a plant produces a flower and where the fruit and/or seeds develop. They love looking at the many varieties and making comparisons of the different types and how they travel to produce offspring. The students separated seeds and created little seed packets to give as a gift to someone special or back to the earth. We love all the excitement that gifts from the garden give back to us! Happy Holidays!
