This afternoon we reviewed how some of the local plants were used by the Chumash. The kids looked at the hummingbird sage, white sage and black sage plants in the sample pot. They learned that chia seeds were crushed in a mortar with a pestle, combined with water and made into something like oatmeal. Then some kids drew their a local plant e.g. monkey flower, hummingbird sage, California poppy or chia. Other kids planted seeds in biodegradable pots and took them home.
