Roots, stems, leaves and more! Heatherwood first-graders are learning about plants this fall. As part of this unit of study, students took a field trip to Growing Gardens in north Boulder on Oct. 10, where they observed and tasted plants like carrots and sage, planted seeds to take home, studied bees, and even sampled fresh honey. Growing Gardens is a non-profit organization founded in 1998. Its mission is to Cultivate community through sustainable urban agriculture.
