Monarchs: Silver Lining

Fifth Graders will be raising and releasing monarchs again this year.  One net for hybrid kids will stay in school--in the Ecocasita.  Each fifth grade teacher will take one note home for all remote.  And a pandemic silver lining...We learned that florist tubes make it much easier to keep monarchs' food supply...milkweed leaves...alive and the nets clean!

Waste Water? Not at BNS!

Johanna created a grey water system at BNS Farm!  

Thanks to Sen, parent of two BNS alumni,  the original pipe was replaced with something more long-lasting.



Fittingly, the container that captures the gently used water is grey.
