  • The Source Relay lesson teaches students that before any product leaves a factory or enters a store, it began as a resource or product of the natural world – most likely agriculture.
  • In the U.S., trees are planted in rows 15 to 20 feet apart. They start to bear nuts about five years after planting. A mature tree can produce 20-25 pounds of nuts per year. Hazelnut trees on average can produce nuts for more than 50 years. Many Oregon growers are third and fourth generation orchardists.
  • Check out the Apples to Oregon Kit from the Free Loan Library! Students will love this regional tall tale. Then make "growing" bracelets to learn the basic elements plants need to grow and thrive.
