Long, long ago dinosaurs roamed our rugged world. Sadly, the ice age hit as did a comet or two and that was the end of that story. OR WAS IT??!! Did we really lose our connection to the Paleozoic Era? Or is a part of it still with us? Folks, cue the Jurassic Park theme song. Enter: Equisetum, also known as horsetail.

Violas and nasturtiums are gorgeous additions to any school garden and you can’t go wrong because like I said, they’re edible! We are also keen on broccoli, arugula, fennel, celery and radish flowers, and we can’t forget the blossoms: chive and onion. They’re ever so good!
