Friday afternoon, June 26, 2015 the Western Addition Beacon youth came for a summer science lesson in the Koshland Garden. The first group was soon-to-be kindergardeners, and the second group, soon-to-be first graders. It is always especially fun to work with these age groups because they are new to the garden and just as energetic as can be! Both groups listened to a story, one about the color green (Green by Laura Vaccaro Seeger) and the other about the Earth (The Earth Book by Todd Parr). Then they got to dig a bed with a pitchfork and plant kale and chard starts. Great Western Addition Staff, Margaret Nwabueze, Dayanit Rojas and Myra Carr joined the groups on their adventures. BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens) summer intern, Meena Khan assisted Adrian Almquist with the classes as well. After planting the vegetables, everyone got a watering can and went off to water the garden. A great way to end the day on a Friday!
