Friendly Pollinators

Listen to the story Bee and Me. Find out all about the amazing  life/role of bees while looking at them in the native plant garden.

Plant Part Yoga Party

We will learn about the life cycle of a plant. We will then practice a plant yoga sequence to really help us remember. Our farm will be filled with wonderful veggies, as we walk through the farm we will have a mindful tasting of the different parts of the plants. Kids will have the opportunity to seed some plants for at home tasting!

Wonderful Worms

Time to get the wiggles out! Listen to Wonderful Worms & Compost Stew. We will go out with shovels and search for our own worms and rolypolies. We will make our own compost stew and check out the worm factory and learn all about how worms make Farmer’s black gold...compost! Make a worm craft to take home.

Chatty Chickens

After reading Sonya’s Chickens, come play with our chickens.  Help feed them,  collect eggs, add hay to their nestboxes, and watch them scratch and peck. Sow your own chicken nest with natural and recycled materials!
