Project PLANTS Science Saturdays

  • Saturday, October 14, 2017 – 9:00 am12:00 pm

Get your fill on the science craze! Project PLANTS explores agriculture and horticulture sciences all year round with Science Saturdaze—a Saturday morning science workshop to explore science concepts with hands-on projects and experiments! Join us to dive into topics such as water quality, photosynthesis, plant chemistry, animal science, local agriculture and more! Workshops are open to Project PLANTS members and middle school students.

From the Ground Up

Come out to the October Project PLANTS Science SaturDAZE workshop for From the Ground Up--how building healthy soil in turn helps us build healthy bodies. We'll learn how plant and human nutrition are connected and ways to increase soil health using cover crops. We'll also end our time with a fun fall favorite: exploding pumpkins!
