Ms. Abrams' Class in the Garden

On Feb. 9 Ms. Abrams' class visited the edible garden. We first discussed the brassica family of plants, which include broccoli, cabbage, arugula, kale and cauliflower. The students observed that the leaves of these plants look similar.  They also saw that the broccoli flowers and arugula flowers have four petals each.

After writing in their journals, the students planted and observed the worms in our new worm composting bin. Thanks to UCCE Master Gardener, Sarah Spitz, for donating her bin and worms to the students at Marquez! There are lots of worms! The worms eat vegetable and fruit scraps.
