Students from Grant High School’s GEO Academy organized and led educational field trips for elementary students to explore and study in the school’s garden. Activities included seed and plant anatomy and adaptations, compost and soil food web investigations, and a “Nutrition Scavenger Hunt”’ of plants and their vitamins. Students also transplanted, harvested, and tasted vegetables, while learning about food safety practices. Caring for Our Watersheds funding helped bring 100 elementary students from 2 schools to have this awesome hands-on experience.
