Washington Youth Garden

April Martin

Thursday afternoon, 5th graders from John Burroughs Education Campus came out for a field trip to the Washington Youth Garden. Last fall they completed a six-week lesson series on the transformation of energy from the sun, through plants, to us! After their in-depth study of photosynthesis, seeds and nutrition, this trip was a chance to get their hands in the soil. Over the course of the afternoon, students explored the garden, harvested, tasted sour French sorrel, planted seeds and even captured offending cabbage loopers. We’re looking forward to having the rest of the Garden Science classes out for their May field trips over the next few weeks. Stay tuned…
