Garden Tea Scavenger Hunt at TAS!

We had lots of fun at The Accelerated School playing a garden scavenger hunt for herbs for some tea!  The students found lots of basil and mint that we crushed up together to flavor our water and try as a tasty treat! The students discussed the observations they made that distinguish the basil plant from the mint plant.

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!
