Garden Magic: Fall 2021


Here’s a look at what students learned in our first Garden Magic program at Hungry Gardens Urban Farm during the fall of 2021:

  • Session 1: Garden Curiosities: Plant a seed and paint your own terra cotta pot
  • Session 2: Soil Party: Learn about the science of soil and make your own soil microbe
  • Session 3: Native Plants and Pollinators: Learn why native plants are important for healthy food gardens, make a collage out of objects found in nature
  • Session 4: Colorful Creations: Discover how veggies, fruits and flowers can be used to dye a piece of cloth!
  • Session 5 : A visit from Mushroom Expert Sam Shoemaker, and starting to design our Garden Magic Markers that will mark all of the garden beds at Hungry Gardens
  • Session 6: Finish Painting and Placing our Garden Magic Markers! 
  • Session 7: Our culminating session- parents and friends are invited to help us finish our Magic Markers and celebrate our accomplishments beautifying the garden!
