Western Addition Beacon Afterschool in Koshland Garden

On September 14, 2017 the after-school class of the Western Addition Beacon kids arrived in Koshland Garden full of enthusiasm to be outdoors. CommunityGrows Gardens Program Manager, Adrian Almquist, corralled the mostly kindergarten and first graders together to start a lesson on the what plants need to survive. Dirt… water… sun… and air. IMG_2061After taking attendance and helping everyone choose nature names for themselves, Adrian talked about the basics of helping plants grow. Youth then planted seeds which they will watch grow throughout the fall. IMG_2009Time was left for everyone to carry water buckets around the garden giving the plants much needed water.
