Johanna Becker, a URI Master Gardener working at Prescott Farm, walks us through the gardens onsite and shares the interesting plants and herbs you’ll find growing there. Then, Mandy Howe takes a step into the apple orchard and demonstrates how we can make fun artwork from apples at home! And when you come to search for all this wildlife at Prescott Farm, be sure to take some notes and drawings in your field journal, demonstrated at the end of the program. Visit https://www.newportrestoration.org/ma… to learn how to make your own field journal!
