Students Age 6-8 Nature Visit to Cypress Community Garden
On July 14th 2023, Summer Camp Students visited our community Garden to explore and to learn about the Pollinator Garden, and the role of insects and bugs in a healthy natural environment. The students age 6-8 also discovered some of the garden’s produce–apples, rhubarb, and herbs. The young summer camp students saw aphids and bumblebees and ladybirds, and had the significance of how the the the ladybirds and aphids interacted explained. They were thrilled to learn about the important difference between a bug and a beetle. Coordinators Chelsea Sweeney and biologist Ken Naumann met with the group and led the exploration. Riley the Community Garden Greeter assisted.
