    • Use children’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm for the outdoors to explore important ecological concepts.
    • Investigate the abundant agricultural history and practices in our area.
    • Discover how fascinating plants are by learning about wild plants as well as the cultivated plants we eat.
    • Explore food in new ways by making and tasting new foods each week.
