US (OR): Elementary school students explore plants, farming, and nomming

Students gathered in a circle with educator and Programs Director Hannah Joseph at Seed to Table farm. Around the circle, each child announced their name and a vegetable.

"My name is Lachlan, and I like carrots," said a boy in a plaid shirt. "My name is Mysie, and I like green onions," said a girl dressed in a red shirt and cap.

Together with others from Sisters Elementary School, they named their group Team Greens.

Students examined vegetables they'd planted on previous field trips, such as onions and lettuce. With Joseph's guidance, they observed where cold weather had made a leaf brown around its edges.

"Mysie, do you want to harvest the green onion?" Joseph inquired. "Yeah!" said Mysie. "Green onions help your sense of smell."
