Ahhhh, to eat and harvest and enjoy life. It’s such a blessing to have all this great food here to snack on. These experiences are really meaningful to students as they eat their experiences and taste new adventures.

It’s our 3rd year in a row taking field trips to our local environmental treasure- Seward Park. It’s amazing to do this on the 2nd and 3rd days of school w/ the entire 4th/5th grade. We get the chance to get to know each other and to learn about native plants, trees, and invasive species. The native plant scavenger hunt is always a hit as we learn about nature’s toilet paper (thimbleberry), salal leaf drinking cups, the AMAZING western red cedar tree, and plant leaves that smell like cucumber (Indian Plum).
