Pierre de Coubertin: Flower pressing workshop

Ryan Oxley, B.A.S.E. Green Initiative Advisor

Pierre de Coubertin’s Green Club took full advantage of the early fall garden bloom to collect flowers and preserve them. The Grade 5 students took only the flowers they needed while leaving the rest to return to the garden eco-system. First, the students cut and placed their flowers facedown on parchment paper. The parchment paper was then placed in between pages of a book and left there for one week. Another heavy object was placed on top of the book to insure the flattening of the flowers. All the students learned a new skill and enjoyed being in the garden having fun.
