We’ll delve into the (almost) magical properties of plants in this class as we perform experiments to discover how water moves in plants, how leaves eat, how sunflowers can stare at the sun and more.

Hygge (pronounced Hue-gah) is a hard to define term used to describe finding coziness in winter- it might be achieved with a candle, a cozy knit blanket, or hot cocoa by a fire but it can also be found with plants! Plants can add brightness, beauty and warmth to your home, all while cleaning your air and making you feel better.
