overview

In the spring, we take a close-up look at how plants grow and reproduce and explore the plant communities that surround us. Through experimentation, service projects, note-taking, journaling, sketching, poetry, and lots of time spent outside,  we investigate plants and their place in the world and delve into our own sense of stewardship and relationship to the natural world.
