Ms. Schwartz's class in the garden

On April 28, Ms. Schwartz's class visited the garden. We reviewed local plants used by the Chumash, especially focusing on white sage (used for ceremonies), black sage (made into sun tea and then put on wounds), hummingbird sage (made into tea to drink) and Cleveland sage (leaves and flowers made into potpourri). The kids had a choice to either plant seeds in a biodegradable pot or draw a favorite veggie or native plant.
