SC Green volunteers, Jeff Evans, Grace van Thillo, and Chris McCormack joined Gary and Laurie Headrick in putting on a planting workshop for two one hour sessions with more than one hundred 6-9 and 10-12 year olds. Thanks to Jeff’s experience as a horticulturist, kids learned much about soil, parts of plants and their various functions. We all remarked on just how well behaved and interested the kids were in this topic for a rather lengthy outdoor class. They each learned how to plant and care for marigolds in this case, but what they learned could be applied to growing many of their favorite fruits or vegetables too. Each of them took a potted plant home with them, and hopefully a lesson that will grow like a seed planted in their cute little heads.
