All About Plants at Bowers Farm

Bowers Farm recently hosted 2nd graders to explore the world of plants, and their impact on the farm, in the Plant Science program. Students tasted and voted on varieties of vegetables to help the farm decide what to plant in their garden come spring. They also dissected their own flowers, and were able to make observations, measure, ask questions, and get a closer look at plant parts under a microscope. When you check out the garden in a few months and see it growing, you can thank the students! Little hands got dirty by seeding the red and white onions, kale, and sunflowers for the growing season. Finally, they were able to examine different animal feeds and see what plants they came from, and gain a real-world connection to agriculture.
