A favorite part of the summer curriculum is traveling to botanical gardens, estates and grounds and looking at plants. No matter what age, students never get tired of taking a field trip. Chateau Ste. Michelle in Woodinville is no exception. Gazing at the beautiful mature trees, identifying perennials, trees and shrubs and critically viewing the lawns as we discuss sustainable lawn care adds to the knowledge and experience of horticulture students. Lucky for us this amazing place is just around the corner.
