Sunshine & spring garden goodness

engaged

Play the youtube link below and realize that yes yes yes- “Everybody Loves the Sunshine”.

We were out in the garden all day cutting off dead branches, clearing out the winter plants, removing weeds, and getting the soil ready for springtime. Though it was chilly, we of coursed warmed up with hard work and hot mint tea. This time of year is great because we move away from the cerebral part of imagining the garden and get into the nitty gritty part. It really is amazing to get out from under the flourescent lights of the classroom and be outside breathing fresh air and really being active. Students rarely complain about working in the garden and I think it’s because it is something that actively engages them- physically and mentally. The garden is a place where most kids are successful and really enjoy being engaged and present. Hello Spring!
