Week 4 in Region 17

We spread our wings this week in Story County. During our visit to Cultivating Hope Farms, we learned the importance of pollinators through Colter and Emily, who demonstrated their significance by acting as pollinators. Gina Perkins showed us how her education programs typically run, so we will have the chance to lead a program of our own! Beyond the education program, Gina took us on a farm tour where we had the opportunity to feed the livestock with Gina.

At the Beloit Donation Garden, we got to work on various tasks. Colter took up weeding the onions, Emily planted squash, and Jasmine got to harvest strawberries and take them to Food at First. We ended the day with some nice cold iced tea and visited with the Master Gardeners.

Overall, a great week, and we can’t believe it is week four already!
