The Deep Discovery climate focused education series provides a glimpse into Lakewold Gardens, and its mission of providing intentional encounters with the life-changing power of nature, fostering peace, creativity and healing in our communities.
Lakewold is a living laboratory with opportunities to explore many natural phenomenon. Against a background of ten acres of native Garry Oak and Douglas Fir forest, a collection of plants from four continents is sited on the shores of Gravelly Lake, called (Cook-al-chy) by the local Steilacoom people. At the edge of an ecologically and cultural significant historic prairie, the garden lends itself to science lessons in natural systems; plant biology; topography; hydrology; ecology and environmental stewardship.
Exploration of the garden encourages students to ask questions, make observations, gather data, and investigate for themselves. Their conclusions are likely to corroborate our gardener’s experience, that there are often multiple ways to approach a problem.
