Life Lab

Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, healthy food, and nature through garden-based education.

These second graders from Boulder Creek Elementary School had a great time picking apples and pressing them into fresh cider in the Apple Room at our Garden Classroom in Santa Cruz last month. In addition to tasting fruit straight from the trees, students on our fall Farm to Fork field trips learn about (and eat!) the six plant parts, reinforcing Next Generation Science Standards on plant structure and function. In our outdoor kitchen they talk about the many varieties and wonders of corn while grinding some into meal and making fresh tortillas from masa. A toast to the sun, soil, water and air and a visit to our chickens and bees round out the lessons and fun for their day on the farm.

And those rosy cheeks? Beet prints from freshly harvested roots! We hope autumn is bringing you a fun and healthful harvest, too.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
