Germination Corps. : Growing in the Classroom

Germination Corps begins by partnering with some awesome teachers in their classrooms. Last May we worked with the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh and local schools on the Northside. Here I am asking the kids if they can tell me what “germination” means. We then embody the seed’s life cycle from germination to food production. All the arms in the air is an exciting site, just like leaves reaching for the sun. Wait until the rain comes!
