"Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life."
"Which of your 5 sense are you using?" you might hear Ms. Swigris ask a 1st grader. Look at a 7th grader's weather report and alongside the charts and measurements you will read descriptors of the sky's appearance, the air's feel or maybe the wind’s scent. Nutrition, plant science, math, critical thinking skills and more are intentionally woven into gardening class’s curriculum. We love watching our students learn concrete concepts through their work with nature but it is the moments of wonder that we anticipate the most. What a great joy it is to work in a place where the teacher can step back and let nature speak.
