Ms. Chaides' 4th Graders Plant White Sage and Vegetable Seeds

Yesterday Ms. Chaides' 4th graders did two types of planting.

We first reviewed the use of white sage by the Chumash-they dry leaves, tied them together and made a smudge stick which they then burn in a ceremony.  Some students then planted the plant outside the room.

Next the children planted seeds and a basil seedling in the Pizza Garden that they are sharing with Ms. Palo's class. They planted heirloom basil, cilantro and onion seeds. They also planted two roots from a green onion which will grow into new onions.

The bed already has a jalapeno pepper, two tomato plants and a kale plant.
