Spring & the wonder of it all…

Sometimes you gotta sit back and realize what an amazing program this is- hands on, experiential education & student engagement of the natural world. Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as “learning through reflection on doing”.

To see these kids faces when they come outside away from the florescent lights of the classroom- they are ready to breathe fresh air and of course get their hands incredibly dirty doing amazing work. We have transplanted over 1000 tomatoes in the last week, with more to come. I constantly remind the students that their hard work is gonna fill gardens around Seattle with fresh, local, and organic food. I can see the pride on their faces…

We planted starts in the garden that we grew in the greenhouse- lots of kales, greens, chard, and salad mix. We are all having visions of spring- a fever is in the air. Lets get to growin’!
