Nature Nugget: Seeds
Our nature lesson this week is on seeds. There are so many different kinds. Each plant makes enough to propagate and feed others. Truly God loves variety and is overflowing in provision for us. The Bible says in Matthew 10:8, "Freely you have received, freely give."

Take Home Project: Grow a Micro Garden
In light of our nature nugget (seeds), the children each received all the supplies they needed to grow broccoli and clover microgreens. Microgreens are itty bitty baby versions of plants or vegetables harvested between 7 and 14 days usually. Microgreens are generally regarded as superfoods because they are more nutrient dense than their mature counterparts. Broccoli micros are very healing because of their high concentration of sulfurophane (anti-cancer, anti-anflammatory, detoxer). Clover is actually a legume, so it is rich in protein. After harvesting, you can cut them up even smaller with scissors when you add them to food. It's a great way to sneak in nutrition on picky eaters. Below are some pictures to help guide you along the way.
