woman with bin full of kitsLast week, Extension staff Mary Arnaudin, Sara Freeman, Maryann Mickewicz, and Bart Renner put together a kit for every Brevard Elementary School third-grade student. All five classes participate in a year-long program called Soil School taught by Master Gardener℠ volunteers in Transylvania County and Extension staff. Students learn third-grade science standards experientially through this partnership. The basil seed necklace kits will be placed in the virtual day school work bags. These kits provide a hands-on opportunity for students to observe seed germination.
