Food Department at Your Site

All creatures on Garden Earth need food to survive and your local ecosystem provides a wide variety of foods. What creatures look for food in your community? What and where do they eat? Are there any pollutants harming the food sources and creatures on your site? Find a tree on your school site. Is any food produced by that tree? You might find young developing berries on a holly bush or nuts on a pecan or oak tree. Look at the grasses that haven't been mowed near fences. Find the seeds that these plants produced. Look for insects feeding on oak leaves. Remember seeds and leaves are important foods for many animals.
