Hidden Villa Presentation

In preparation for our upcoming field trip, we had a presentation from our naturalist Nicolette from Hidden Villa. Hidden Villa is non profit organic farm located in Los Altos Hills. Our program focus is environmental education. We learned about how soil and compost are essential to our agriculture and survival. Ask your learner to explain how poop is the most important ingredient in making a strawberry milkshake!! Thanks to our parent volunteers we had stations where we learned about some interesting information that we can observe at Hidden Villa. You can ask your learner to tell the story of how our land had changed from the days of Native Californians to today and what their thoughts about what the future holds. You can also ask them to explain to you how we use the parts of cows in things you would never expect like balloons, gummy bears and glue. Finally have them tell you the story of seeds, how plant adaptions help them disperse their seeds in the environment.
