It was a great day for most of us (and by most of us, I mean the plants) today at Hollenbeck – the skies opened up and rain came falling down in intermittent cycles of calm and fury. Regardless, the students had a lot of fun. When it started to rain a lot, we moved the lesson indoors where we talked about weather patterns and the drought. Students reflected on what the drought meant for them, and some took native plant seeds home with them to plant.
At lunch time, the students helped harvest kale, carrots, pak choy, romaine lettuce, and tomatoes to give to the cafeteria. We celebrated by harvesting strawberries.
