On April 1, Ms. Bihari and her class visited the garden. The students made potpourri from Cleveland sage. The Chumash made tea from it. This is part of their study of native plants used by the Chumash and Tongva, our local Native Americans.
After a discussion of what potpourri is, the children stripped off the leaves and flowers of the Cleveland sage and put them in cups to take home. They all enjoyed the scent!
Today's "taste of the garden" consisted of lettuce and purple broccoli.
Later four students helped to plant some mint and California poppies in the upper yard "mini" Native American garden.
