Ms. Chaides' Students Plant in the Native American Garden
On February 26, some of Ms. Chaides' students planted in the Native American Garden. Before planting, they observed a California poppy and learned that it is the state flower. They planted penstemon, black sage and Cleveland sage. They learned some of the uses of these plants by our local Native Americans. Penstemon leaves are made into a poultice and placed on wounds or insect bites. Black sage is made into a tea that Chumash soak their feet in.
