Understanding How Plants Operate

IMG_3788 IMG_3789

El Sereno Elementary started a new cycle with first time garden students. As they learned the functions of the plant parts and what we eat they begin to understand the importance of things in the garden like soil and flowers. A snack of purple cauliflower was a great introduction and coincided with the addition of flowers to the garden to attract pollinators.
