Time to Explore!

After being away all summer Kester Kids spent their first week exploring all the new plants growing in the garden. But, a visit to the garden wouldn’t be complete with out getting dirty so everyone pitched in to do some much needed maintenance!

we had about four piles this big! Out with the old to bring in the new 🙂

 

Every moment spent in that garden is an opportunity to educate. Kester Kids Learned about different types of roots and as they pulled the weeds they were able to identify what type of root system that root had adapted to survive. It was also fun seeing who was able to find the looonngesssttt root!
