Ms. Lebiszczak shared her "The Benefit of Plants" weebly assignment with me (you can access her blog here). Some of her students will be researching the positive impact of plants in public spaces and Art 30 students will help to create some prototypes. Eventually Ms. Lebiszczak's students will be pitching the idea of creating a green space in Warman High School to Mr. Broughton.
In other plant news, I started germinating some chia seeds last night because I want to see if they can grow on clay (or on recycled kitchen cabinets). Here are some pictures of the process. #1 chia seeds before I added water, #2 a couple hours after I added water, and #3 12 hours after I added water. I plan to try mixing the chia into the moss mixture in addition to just applying the chia alone to various surfaces, to see how it does. I touched it this morning, and it feels a bit like gelatin.
