Living Lab Uses

As it is the end of the garden season, I don't expect that many of you will start planting right away, but there are are many other uses for the new Living Lab.

Scheduling Use of the Living Lab

I have created a Google Calendar called "Living Lab" and have given each of you access to create events in it.  If you access your NatickPS calendar online (using Google Calendar) you should now see it listed under "Other Calendars"

If you want to use the space, just create a new event in your calendar and invite "Living Lab (room)".  The calendar address will appear in your invites as "".  If the space is available at the time selected, it will automatically be added to the Living Lab calendar.  Email to request access to the Living Lab calendar.

Living Lab Rules

A lot of work has gone into putting the Living Lab together, so we would appreciate it if you would review the following rules with your students before using the space.  We will print and post the rules by the doors to the Living Lab shortly.

Living Lab Resources (coming soon)

​Not all of the supplies are in place yet, but I wanted to give you a preview of what to expect.

Living Lab Experiments/Planting

I will send out more information soon, but as we finish the greenhouse, you can request space in it for class plantings/experiments.  Your area will be labeled and you have the option of having volunteers help water your plants, or be completely responsible for this task.  We don't want to ruin any experiments if you are trying to see how plants grow without water :)  You will also have the opportunity to request space in the raised planters out on the grass.

There is no hose in the Living Lab, but we do have 2 rain barrels that can be used as a water source.
