Seed Starting (Gr 5)
In this workshop students will germinate seeds for school garden squash and zucchini seedlings. In the process they will explore the role of energy in the food supply chain and discuss different ways of increasing the sustainability of our food supply
chains, by reducing energy and resource inputs. They will compare a conventional supply chain to a local organic chain
and identify ways of reducing the use of nonrenewable energy in food production and consumption.
