Prairie Queen Cloverbuds

The Prairie Queen Cloverbuds meet Sunday March 21, 2021 at the Eads Community Building to learn about plants. 

The Cloverbuds were shown many different samples of soil and asked it the plants would grow. There was potting soil, clay, sticks, rocks, cotton and plastic gloves. It was determined that the rocks would not work well because the seeds just stayed on the top. 

The Cloverbuds were able to pick a package of seeds and everyone had a different kind. They had to read the packages of what kind they were and how long it would take them to make something to eat. They ranged from 56 days to 99 days. 

After they read everything, the Cloverbuds pick a peat pot and chose the soil that they wanted to grow their seeds in and most of them choose the potting soil to plant them in. 

When they were finished with that, they took the gloves and cotton to make a greenhouse to grow five different kinds of seeds in. 

They were able to take their projects home and watch the seeds grow. 

Their next meeting will be April 18 @ 1 pm.
