Befriending Some Beneficial Bugs In Outdoor Classes In OMI/ Excelsior Living Library & Think Park

Worms, Bees, Ladybugs, Spiders!

What used to make them jump and squeal, are not so bad.  They’re actually our allies.

Denman Students learned that worms are tending the soil, bees are spreading pollen, and lady bugs are protecting our crops from the hungry aphids.

Meanwhile, the spinning spiders are watching over the gardens keeping the mosquitoes and flies at bay.

Learning About Native Plants & Edible Herbs In OMI/ Excelsior Living Library & Think Park

 

Denman Middle School students learned about native plants, uninvited “weeds”, and which of these species are actually edible.  Afterwards, they explored the Living Library gardens searching for tasty greens to throw into their salad.

In a scavenger hunt, they found chickweed, cleavers, mint, nasturtium, and dandelion, to name a few.

Then they harvested heads of lettuce, washed and cut them up, and whipped up a delicious salad dressing—with fresh picked lemons from the garden.

All in ALL, in was a fun feast for the middle schoolers!
