Program Description & Details

What's the story of the plants we eat? Students will explore the journey of a vegetable from seed to plate, studying the seeds of plants grown on the farm, learning about their unique differences. Through a guided tour, students will see plants in different stages of their reproduction and their life cycle, relating this knowledge to our choices about what we eat in which season, and why that may be. As always, there's a chance for hands to get dirty after visiting our seed field, where we experiment with seed saving different varieties and understanding local adaptations. Students will harvest or plant seeds to take home and plant in their own gardens or patios.
