The Learning Community School, located in Black Mountain, NC brought out the kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 4th graders to the farm to experience our Monarch butterflies and learn about pollinators. It was a great time for them to come because of the many things we have to offer at this time of the year.

After the maze, we went into the flight house to look at the monarchs and other butterflies
Then it was on to make seed bombs using clay and native wildflowers, including some seeds that they gathered themselves.
After washing up, it was time to go and say goodbye. I sure had fun, and I'm pretty sure that they did too!
Here is a short video of the kids coming out of the maze:
