Plant Yourself in the Garden
Grades Completed: 2-5
Camp #304: June 8-12, 9am-12pm
Location: Southern Heights Presbyterian Church
Explore nature through the study of gardening, plants and creative art projects at Southern Heights Food Forest, a community garden space. Learn firsthand as you dig in the dirt, plant seeds and seedlings and taste vegetables. Research food systems, the life cycle of plants and why pollinators and compost are important to our environment. Do yoga on the grassy hill, help with garden jobs and climb in the messy materials area of the Nature Explore classroom. With your notes and sketches of flowers, insects and trees, create a record of your experiences in your nature journal.
Taught by Andrea Jenkins, Everett Elementary School Art Teacher
