How do plants depend on their parts and on other living things to help them survive? 
Students explore plant structure and function and what plants need to grow. Visiting the garden, greenhouse, orchard and fields, pond area, and animal barn, students will investigate how plants depend on animals and insects for pollination and seed dispersal as we look at the interdependence of living things on the farm. Interactive sessions and STEAM design and build activities help students explore how they can make a positive difference in the world around them through plants! Students will question, hypothesize, experiment, analyze data, conclude and question again as they experience hands-on lab activities.

 Cost: $40 first youth participant, $25 for additional youth Grades K-3.
Cancellation fee of $15 after April 15, 2021.
A link to join interactive sessions will be sent to registrants before the series begins.
