International School Of Brooklyn, which is located at 477 Court Street, took a little field trip to Carroll Gardens this morning to learn about dirt, earthworms and plants.
Gary Dolan, president of Friends of Carroll Park was on hand with gloves and trovels, which the kids used to loosen the dirt so that they could add worms to the earth.
The children learned about the benefit of worms to the plants in the park and were obviously delighted by the wiggly creatures. They also learned how to pot a little marigold, which they got to take home.
Hopefully, the students will have a new appreciation for the earthworms and for the plantings in Carroll Park.
Thanks, Gary, for taking the time to teach the next generation about nature. Hopefully they will, one day, become park volunteers!
