Eating Your Microgreens

Microgreens can contain up to four to five times more nutrients than a full grown plant or fruit. These baby plants are only one to three inches tall and have four leaves; the cotyledon leaves and the first two true leaves of a plant. Huckleberry students have been engaged in learning how important it is to take care of all our body systems and feeding them with proper nutrients. This week we embarked on a new adventure in growing our own microgreens and in a couple of weeks we hope to have a nutritious feast. Stay tuned for more pictures...


The Clarkia explored beyond our school boundaries this week looking for native plant species that the PNW Native Americans used in their everyday lives. We found Ocean Spray, Stinging Nettle, Oregon Grape, Huckleberry, Maidenhair Ferns, and have more yet to find. It was surprising to see how many miracle plants were right in our backyard.


As the weather warms and the sun shines, the weeds take off in abundance. The Trillium put their muscles and tools to work in helping uncover our strawberry plants that were smothered by weeds. They learned the importance of roots, stem, leaves, flowers, buds, and fruit. We can't wait to taste the fruit of our labors.
