Elementary Science Showcase Comes to Heathcote

Students from Weatherbee Elementary displayed their science projects at Heathcote as part of our recent National Public Garden Day event.  Visitors found the students’ work impressive.  Parents and students enjoyed touring the Gardens and our cats were a big hit!  Education is at the heart of our mission, so we welcome collaboration with our local schools.

Plant Detectives On the Job

Savannah Ridge Elementary School students recently visited Heathcote for our Plant Detective field trip and tour. They learned about plant structure and needs. They sleuthed hands-on by dissecting seeds and planting pole beans in cups to take home to grow. A helicopter seed craft and picnic on the lawn rounded out their Garden experience.
