Enhance your homeschool program with hands-on fun and educational classes.
Ever wonder why so many plants in gardens and landscapes look almost identical? Well, it’s because genetically they are identical! In a world where so many people and animals of the same species all look so different, how is it that we have identical plants? In this lesson will learn about basic plant physiology and the movement of materials in, through, and out of plants so that we can learn how to propagate, or "clone," identical plants. We learn various propagation methods and how to manipulate the environment to provide an optimal environment for propagated plants to grow. You’ll transform into a mad scientist working in your lab (the greenhouse) and will go home with your very own cloned plants! Join us for this fun and educational field trip.
Instructors: David Pease & Milly Burnett, UT Garden educators
