Edible Parts of A Plant with TAS!

For this lesson we learned that we eat every part of the plant.  Vegetables represent different parts of the plant and the students were most surprised to learn that we eat roots!  They were also surprised to learn how many vegetables are technically the fruits of plants.

Originally from Arizona, I was brought out to beautiful Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California where I will be graduating come December with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies.  I grew up with a love of gardening from spending summers on my papou’s farm in Greece to helping my parents tend to our personal garden in Arizona.  My passion for the environment and gardening go hand-in-hand and I can’t wait to incorporate lessons from my studies to the students I am teaching at Alta Loma!
