Texas Discovery Garden

The field trip today was educational but with a fun twist. The Texas Discovery Gardens had a small presentation set up and afterwards they had two hands on centers. The kids, mainly CJ took a major interest in composting. CJ was answering questions, paying attention and the look on his face was that of gratitude. Besides the rain the kids really enjoyed what they learned and many mention they would show their parents how to compost. -Ms. Nazareth

Ishmael makes his own compost, which includes: leaves, grass, paper, and water.

The kids huddle around Juan, as he explains why the temperature of the compost is so hot.

So cool! Ishmael...good to see you back! C.J....can you teach me how to compost?? I've been trying to do it at home, but I don't quite know what I'm doing.

I'm so glad the rain held off enough for you guys to do your field trip. It sounds like it was a lot of fun!
