Host Nan Franzblau and reading interventionist from San Lorenzo Elementary, Pat Ross, talk with seven 4th and 5th graders from Mimbres about the gardens and greenhouse on their school grounds.  The kids share plans for maintaining an aquaponic system they are currently building before delving into the importance of native species, decomposers, photosynthesis, and plant anatomy.  Their enthusiasm is contagious as they share the many benefits of growing their own food as well as some surprises from their plot, including human-shaped carrots and native beans that grew from seeds that had been planted in years past!  Finally, they reflect on all they have learned, the bonds of friendship forged, the importance of community, and their own “garden superheroes.”
