Farmer Stan presents hands on fruit and vegetable identification workshop. Not only will the students identify over 10-15 different fruits and vegetables, they will discuss which ones have seeds and which ones do not. Also do we eat the seed? Some we do and some we do not. Some have no seeds.
After learning all about Basic Plant Life Cycle each student and teacher will plant their very own 10" vegetable garden “clock”, complete with a tomato transplant in the center of the clock as the arms. Then we will plant different types of seeds from green beans, squash, sunflower, potato eyes, onion sets and pumpkins.
The gardens can be taken home and they will be given instructions on how and where to transplant their garden plants to potentially harvest over $50 worth of healthy fresh food. We will also visit the farm animals and learn about what the farmer feeds the animals, such as soybeans, corn, hay and grains to make bacon, cheese, ham and foods that are part of a healthy and nutritious diet.
A visit to the Bee Keeper will explain to students the role honey bees play in pollination and honey production.
