The Healing Power of Plants at Sixth Ave

Students at Sixth Ave have been studying healing properties of various plants in the classroom, so we took the lesson outside to learn the healing properties of our own garden plants. After we studied the different plants growing in the garden, we harvested basil, rosemary, and lemon verbena to make a healing tea. The students even added some of the leaves on top of their pizza from lunch!
