Green Learning Station
16 Aug, 2013. 0 Comments. . Posted By: lncigc

Program Description:

The Green Learning Station at the Civic Garden Center is home to a hands-on field trip for secondary students to learn about green solutions to common urban environmental issues. Trained guides lead small groups of students through the site, facilitating discussion and experiments and sharing information at four stations:

Don't Throw the Nutrients Out with the Trash
Growing Food in the City
Leaky Pavement
Rooftop Gardens

At each station students work together to solve a problem, which helps them engage with and build understanding of science and sustainability concepts. Students record their thoughts and activities in field books so they can take their experiences back to the classroom. In the course of the field trip, students will: design a composting system, design and conduct experiments with different types of green roofs and pervious pavements, discover and taste different edible plant parts, identify plant families based on their characteristics.

Plan to be on site for 3.5 hours, including time for a bag lunch.
