Agriculture Sit & Meditation


One of my favorite garden curriculum books is French Fries & The Food System– it is a book about gardening, food security, social justice, and many other fabulous topics we explore here in the Orca Garden.


A really great activity in there is the “Agriculture Sit” which involves finding a quiet spot in the garden at least 10 feet away from other students. They then answer a series of questions involving what they see, hear, smell, and more. So we sat outside on an incredibly sunny pre-spring day w/ a hot cup o’ Orca mint tea and enjoyed this activity.


It’s just amazing to see kids quiet and contemplative, focused and engrossed, and outside! These students are capable of deep reflections that they don’t always get a chance to explore.
