Girls Plant Magic
Come explore and enjoy the magic of our plant friends who surround us everyday in Vermont! Just like the plants, we will set our feet onto the earth to grow our roots, spread our leaves to play in the sun, and hold our seeds of knowledge for future growth! We have a chance to discover how plants each have their unique set of characteristics, medical properties, and other uses such as for crafts, decoration, and more. There is so much to learn from the environment around us...bring your curiosity and playfulness!
