“The weather has been on and off” cries so many Vancouverites as we experience a fair mix of wet and beautiful sunny days.

The mood swings of Vancouver weather may not be good for us who long for sunny days after the tough times we had last winter… but the plants love it!!

Ready, seed, grow!

Our planting class has been so awesome so far and we’ve been having a blast! We started off by introducing ourselves to our planting expert Jack and the Beanstalk who teaches us that magic beans and a little bit of magic water, can make wonders!

With the help of our friend Jack, we watch our own beanstalk grow taller and taller with every budding’s visit. During the month of May we concentrated on plant “haves.” We learned about the different parts of a plant and even got to go on a wonderful field-trip to Queen Elizabeth Park to examine the glorious flowers in full bloom!

We can’t fail to mention that we also go hands on, watering plants, digging through dirt and soil, and pulling out the not-so-nice weeds in the flower beds.

Coming up!

In the following weeks, we will be learning about plant ‘wants’ and a fancy process called photosynthesis! Of course, we will be doing more DIY spring projects as well! Don’t miss out! We’ll be busy planting on Tuesdays from 1-4pm. 🙂

Spring is here!

We have made it through the long, cold winter! We’re beginning to see more sunshine… and maybe more rain, but that’s okay! Springtime means the weather is getting warmer and plants are starting to revive!

In this season of Big Kids Club we will be digging into the topic of planting! With the help of our friend Jack, who is a professional at growing beanstalks, we will explore what plants need to grow grow grow!

Jack will guide us through plant ‘haves’, ‘wants’, and ‘gives’.

We will learn all about photosynthesis, to learning the parts of a plant, and will even explore through a garden walk through Queen Elizabeth Park!

Next, we will dig right into what plants need to survive and grow, then Jack will help us grow some plants of our own! From greenhouses, to nature mosaics… our busy hands will be full of projects for this spring.

Don’t miss out and join Jack and the Beanstalk as we explore the DIY topic of planting! That’s every Tuesday from 1-4pm. 🙂
