When teaching life sciences and sustainability with students of any age, seed saving is an essential element that bridges the gap between a text book explanation and real life. As students experience the full cycle of a plant, from planting the seed to harvesting the seed, the concept of life cycles is experienced more deeply beyond words or charts.
You’re invited to dive into our wonderful collection of plant flowers, collected from garden goodies as they’ve bolted into Spring.
Class options include:
- “Why Save Seeds?” talk story
- Pollination – Self-pollinators and insects as pollinators
- Wet & dry seed-saving techniques
- Seed storage tips
- Take away seeds for home gardens and next year’s school garden!
