A Children's Garden
We had been working so hard for this moment--for the garden to go live. The children took to it like ducks to water-- touching, smelling, tasting, running through. Finally our time had come to observe them in this environment we had made, and it was glorious.
The stepping stone path proved to be the perfect guide for the children to follow on their way to discover the garden.
There were plenty of late summer vegetables ready to pick and taste in the moment or gather for our snack table or cooking class.
Bela the bunny got his fair share, as well.
Already that first week of school we were on our way to realizing the Edible Schoolyard, Montessori Children's House style. Happy Day!
