Your students will be put in groups of 15 upon arrival. Each group of 15 will have their own guide for the Garden. Field Trip lessons include using the Garden as a teaching tool to explore science lessons. Subjects may cover vegetables, plant adaptations, life cycles, butterflies, gardening, watersheds, native plants and cool plant facts – all while engaging the senses and walking through the six cultivated acres of the Garden.
