Blooms on the Bluff


Come up to the bluff for beautiful flowers, plants, crafts, and fun. This festival will run for two weekends. The trees are blooming, the weather is wonderful, and it is a great opportunity to get out of the house and get ready for spring and summer. Green Bluff is located about 15 minutes north of Spokane and is nestled at the foothills of Mt. Spokane. It is divided into two loops of farms, the East and the West. The farms offer a wide variety of fruits and vegetables either picked or you-pick. Not all farms participate in all events.

DATEBOOK BLOOMS


There are more living creatures in a shovel-full of soil than there are human beings on the planet, yet more is known about the dark side of the moon than about soil! Dig It! The Secrets of Soil, is an amazing interactive exhibit created by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History. The 4,000-square-foot display reveals the complex world of soil and how this hidden ecosystem supports nearly every form of life on earth. The exhibit demonstrates the many possibilities for building not only a soil science curriculum, but also related curricula such as nutrition, global food production, chemistry, biology, botany, physics, geology, climate change, and the arts including animation for multi- media.
