Building on a Foundation

I passed by the Columbia Secondary School Community Garden yesterday and saw this sign by the gate.   Made me think about the history behind those walls that are integral to our garden.    We are building on a sound foundation and will continue to do so.    Enjoy the growth.

The New Season, The New Sites

We’re looking at a lot of different locations for our fall sessions of Read a Recipe.    This particular garden would be perfect, and it is perfect.   The only problem is that it’s in Ireland.   Visit again soon to find out what gardens we will be using!

The Scribes at El Sol

We had some enthusiastic writers at the last Read a Recipe session, El Sol Summer Camp.   They all wrote about their favorite activity at camp.    Snow day was a big hit as was the visit to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, in Jupiter.    And then there was the field trip to We Rock

Exploring in the Garden

Check out some of the photos of the students exploring and observing the progress of the garden. They even did a little tasting. The Kale was great! These photos were taken at the end of June.

Having Fun Watering the Garden

The garden was planted back in May and the vegetables are growing as fast as are students!

Making Summer Journals

The students came together for the first summer session in the beginning of July where they made their own writing journals. We discussed how journals are an important form of communication. The students were excited to begin writing their stories and ideas in them!
