First Field Trip at The Raincatcher’s Garden of Midway Hills

West Dallas Community School fifth graders came to our new gardens last week. Composting, Butterflies, Vermiculture, and Herbs were the subjects of the day!

How to “host” butterflies in your garden, how to provide nectar sources, these were some of  the topics in butterfly class.

“Along with milk and vegetables, kids need a steady diet of rocks and worms. Rocks need skipping, holes need digging, water needs splashing, and bugs and frogs and slimy stuff need finding.”  *

Our free, garden field trips provide this type of outdoor learning experience.  Science is taught in a hands on, interesting way. For more information about our school field trips, please click here.
