Second grade goes on a field trip!
We are so lucky to have this amazing farm right in our community.
Today the second graders went to Emma Prusch farm. They learned SO much about native plants, composting, and all different types of herbs and vegetables.
A native plant does not need a lot of water in California- Alexa
A native plant is a plant that comes from the area- Joseph
To prune means to cut it, to put it into shape- Damian
We need to prune because if you let the leaves on the branch there won’t be space and there will only be a little bit of fruit on the plants. – Jeremias
We got to smell lavender- Diego
We smelled a chocolate mint plant- Johnny
We got to touch the cotton plant- Jayla
We smelled a plant that smelled like pineapple- Victoria
We got to pick a strawberry and eat it- Miyah
The artichoke is a flower- Emily
Compost is something that keeps plants alive- Andy
Compost is things that break down into soil- Jenny
Compost is dead plants that have lots of nutrients- Alexa
To see if your soil has enough water you grabbed a handful of soil and squeeze it. If it is too dry it breaks apart, if there is too much water it will come out between your fingers. If it is just right it forms a shape- Ariela
