Are you interested in incorporating art into your garden study? Great!

Yesterday, we talked about the culture gardens made by Greta. She took plants from each of 14 countries around the world and made mini-gardens to help kids learn about the culture of each country. But she wasn’t done there!

Greta also decided to make a mural showing off her research. She picked plants common in certain parts of the world and placed them on top of a world map:

Then, Greta got to painting, with help of kids in our after-school program and one of our teen interns. In April, it looked like this:

Right now, there are too many leaves on the trees to get you an image of the whole mural, but after the leaves fall off, we promise more photographs! Check out Greta’s blog for updates.

And Happy (almost) Thanksgiving to you all – we hope your festive meals this week are as fantastically delicious as the cornucopia Greta drew in the world map above!
