“My SECOND-GRADE CLASS at ASTOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL marked EARTH DAY by planting marigold, cosmos, clove and nasturtium seeds on the school grounds,” RENEE FRUIHT told the Ear.

“JENNIFER RASMUSSEN from Oregon State University Extension came to our class to talk about seeds, and helped the students plant some seeds in the classroom,” she explained. “We decided to take the lesson outside to celebrate Earth Day and beautify the school at the same time. The students had a great time.”
