movies update

Today was the first day of our club. I think it went extremely well. I had fun doing it and the kids gave me their rapt attention.

Today we talked about what plants need to grow, talked about their favorite veggies, looked at the seeds of several cool weather vegetables, "planted" a few on damp paper towels placed in Ziploc baggies, and passed out coloring pages of vegetables and gardening. I even had an old seedpod from last year's radish that went to seed. I was able to show the kids where the seeds came from, broke it open, and we found three seeds inside. I set up a display and placed the seed-filled baggies there for the kids to check out every day. I tried some at home a week ago and they grew surprisingly quickly.

Next week we'll plant in portable raised beds that will be put in place at a later date.

I'm happy to say that although it is starting out as vegetable gardening, it will progress to include planting (natives) for birds and butterflies. I'm hoping eventually to do a wildflower trail (next year or so). There is a trail overrun by Japanese honeysuckle. Apparently they have some college students who will be clearing paths---then I'm hoping to develop a plan for creating something beautiful and beneficial to wildlife.

I see the shots I have are not really up to par, but I sent them along JUST in case you could use them IF it's not too late.

That is okay. I will likely talk about how birds help control garden pests next week. I found some pictures on the web, but actually very few...I think I may use at least the purple martin one...maybe more. Thank you!
