About the Program
The Plant and Play program introduces students to the basic survival needs of local plants and animals, the importance, parts, and life cycle of plants and animals. Students learn that different vegetables and plants have adapted different seeds and have a chance to match the seeds with what plant they are from. Students will plant seeds both at the Community Greenhouse and in a small pot that they can take home and watch the development. Students, teachers, and families are encouraged to return to the Groundswell Community Greenhouse to check on the progress of their plants over the season.
The program combines lessons, hands-on activities, a 5 senses sit spot, a song/chant, hands-in the dirt activities and a take away as well as games and free playtime. The program will be outside, so please dress according to the weather and with the understanding that students will be getting into the dirt (and thus dirty!).
