400th blog post. Reflections in soil…

Well- it’s quite a pleasure to announce our 400th blog post! In almost 5 years, we have had 66,292 views from 118 countries. Thanks to everybody for their support and encouragement. The garden is truly a community affair- parents, teachers, & students. Thank you!

We are really lucky to do what we do- get students excited about food, gardening, environmental science, and sustainability. Orca is a place for all kids to practice being critical thinkers and to really develop a connection with the world that is meaningful and real.

So as we get set to grow and donate thousands of plants (as we do every year during our plant sale)- there are always ideas, thoughts, & questions brewing around here to conjure up bigger and better plans. How can we all practice having an impact on the natural world around us? What does it mean to truly give? How can we get kids excited about making a difference?? As we like to say here at Orca…

Growing the revolution, one plant at a time (& one kid at at time!)

Now check the stats for 2012 below- it was our busiest year ever…Dig it.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 21,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 5 Film Festivals
