Marigold Lesson

The Marigold Effect: Students got to participate in a concept called ‘companion planting’ placing certain vegetables and plants near each other to improve growth and prevent disease and fungus. Among companion plants, marigolds are one of the best! Plant a marigold beside most any garden veggie and they will be protected from harmful pests and weeds, and grow big, healthy, and strong. Life is much like the garden. We have a choice to be a marigold or a weed. Students learned all about the positive effects of marigolds, making good choices, and why we would want to stay away from weeds that can infect us. Students agreed that being a marigold and having a positive effect on others, supporting, and encouraging them so they can thrive in this garden we call life is good for all of us!❤️🌼📝
