Tyler Arboretum presents: The Enormous Potato at Swarthmore Public Library

For Children in grades 1-5

The book The Enormous Potato by Aubrey Davis tells the story of people working together to harvest and enjoy potatoes. In this program led by Tyler Arboretum, we will learn how a garden ecosystem similarly works together to support the growth of the potato. Student scientists will explore the importance of soil and the critters that live in it as we explore our live worm bin. Then we’ll discover how all of the parts of the potato plant work together too. We’ll do an illuminating experiment to discover the power of potatoes and how this nutritious food can help us grow. Each student will wrap up the program by planting their very own potato eye to grow and experiment with at home.  A Longwood Garden's Community Read event.  Participants are encouraged to read The Enormous Potato by Aubrey David prior to event.
