Welcome to team STRAWBERRY!
Our first day was so fun. We learned a lot about plants they are amazing . Here are some things to help you know more.
Why is it important to save seeds? - Seed banks allow the preserving of plants that may go extinct for some reason. We also have food security with these banks.
What is a watershed? - An area of land that encompasses mountains/valleys that collects water.Why do farmers use cover crops?Cover crops preserve the top soil and allow nitrogen to be added. Nitrogen is needed for plants to grow nice and tall. Also it prevents run off.
What are some native plants that can tolerate hot/dry climates? - Aweoweo Uki Uki Pohinahina Hibiscus Pau ki'i aka These plants are native to Hawaii. They do not require watering after they have settled in. We planted a few new native plants. There was quite a few bugs, I was told this means that the soil is healthy.
