Eco-workshops for birthdays, farmers’ markets, schools and other events!

1. Lay empty cd case flat

2. Put soil in case to cover bottom half of case

3. Put Christmas Lima Bean near top of soil (can experiment with other beans)

4. Tape the bottom, so everything stays in (optional)

5. Water the bean every day through the holes

6. When you see your bean has sprouted, label the parts on the cd case with permanent marker: the cotyledons (first leaves), the leaves, stem, roots

Use your nature journal to record your scientific findings, including; the date, observation, measurement, bean plant drawing

Have fun!

Once the plant has sprouted, you can transplant into a pot with soil.

Leaves and flowers

Seed pods!!!!

Remove seed pods when light brown and set aside to dry; in a week or so, remove beans to use as seeds to plant more!

Find us at a future event to get a free seed to start at home!
