5.9.2022 FBI Agents of Compost • Spring Plant Sale • Small Space Gardening Series

FBI Agents of Compost 
Fungus • Bacteria • Invertebrates

Students are exploring the garden soil and learning about the FBI agents of compost. We are having so much fun getting our hands dirty during this lesson.  We’ve learned healthy soil needs to have decomposers to break down organic mater and create nutrients for the plants we grow.  Students have been getting up close to these critical helpers to learn more about the science of good soil and healthy gardens.  
We Hope To See You THIS Weekend!
August 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.
