Homeschool Day

Flowers, Clouds, and Veggies!

Monday, May 13, 2019 – 10:00 am and 11:00 am

Come kick off summer with one more class in the garden! We will have three stations set up to explore flowers, weather, and vegetables. Students can learn the parts of the flower, collect weather data, and dig into the vegetable garden around the Yurt.

Activities are planned for students ranging from kindergarten to 5th grade level. Activities are repeated at each time session, so sign up for either the 10:00 am or 11:00 am session.

Parents or caregivers are expected to stay with students as they rotate through the activities. This is a rain or shine event.
