4.13.2023 Spring in the Gardens • Registration is Open • Looking for Volunteers
|Spring Has Arrived in The Gardens|
The sun and warm temps have joined us in the gardens this week as students explore what makes healthy soil for plants to grow. In our first lesson of the “GROWing Health Minds, Bodies and Soil” series we talk about how to ground our emotions and our plants.
Students compare and contrast four different types of soil. They learn how the differences help or hurt plant growth. We look at what makes the best composition to grow healthy plants.
|There are still spaces open in the first|
Kids Cooking Challenge Skill Builder Workshop.
|Farm Camp Registration is Open|
Are you ready to dig, run, build, draw, garden, eat and discover? GROW La Crosse presents Summer on the Farm, where students will plant, tend, and harvest fruits and vegetables and explore where our food comes from. Students will also learn how to identify species and understand the relationship between each part of the farm and the larger ecosystem. We will spend time each day being active outside including: hiking up the bluffs, building forts, splashing in the creek, and caring for the animals at the farm. In this session we will place an emphasis on science – animal behavior, hypothesis formation, data collection, species identification, building connections in the larger farm ecosystem, local signs and solutions to climate change and more.
Ages: Registration is open for students entering grades 2 – 8
Dates: July 31st to August 3rd
Time: 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
