Plants, Soils & Floriculture
with Rachel Hazen, University of Illinois Extension & 4H Club
(Limited to 30 students)
Students will learn and compare the needs of healthy soil and plants as well as what constitutes friends and foes of the garden. Students will also plant floral and vegetable seeds and gain an understanding of planting in small spaces and urban gardens. As the week progresses, students will be exposed to the beauty, environmental and health benefits of flowers, foliage and greenery and make a small floral design. They will learn how to harvest a garden, understanding the nutritional value a garden holds while they make healthy snacks from a garden.
