Garden Journaling!

The garden clubbers received their journals on Saturday, which they will update throughout the growing season about the life cycle of plants and butterflies, good and bad bugs and germination. Who knew you could learn so much from digging in the dirt? #journal #growingseason #bugs #lifecycle #gardening #chestereastside
