What better way to celebrate National Wildlife Week than a study on zebra mussel shells?Near West Intergenerational School in Ohio City. Thirteen students in Mrs. Goodman’s homeroom will be playing scientist over the next several months, measuring and evaluating compost in preparation for spring planting.
About three weeks ago, I started cultivating my own seeds, using heirloom seed packets from the City of Cleveland’s Seed Library program. In an upcoming session with elementary school students, we will try our hand at growing some delicious fresh produce thanks to my friends over at NAPECA.
Today is the first day of spring. What a glorious way to start the season of green!
