Ms. Bihari and her class visit the garden
Today Ms. Bihari and her class visited the garden. First, the kids reviewed the following native plants and their uses by the Chumash: Cleveland sage, white sage, black sage and hummingbird sage. We also discussed the Three Sisters Garden which we've planted. It has corn, beans and squash. These plants help each other: the beans grow up the corn stalk and the squash keeps the ground cooler. We've planted two types of squash: pumpkin and zucchini.
The kids then planted warm season vegetable seeds in biodegradable pots. The kids planted cucumbers, tomatoes, sunflowers and more.
