Reflecting on the last 6 months
Today is the second day of the Global Gardens summer program and I have just been reflecting a bit on the year and all that has happened since I began working with the Eugene Field students back in January. The students have been incredible and inspiring with their commitment, creativity, and motivation, both in the classroom and in the garden. Just 6 months ago, they started with pages full of ideas, drawings, and dreams, and they now have a beautiful garden space filled with color and life! It has been so inspiring to watch these students believe in themselves and their community as they work together to create something that they have become so proud of. Please enjoy our blog, your virtual tour of the garden... and if you live nearby, come on out for a visit! And if you have a minute, please leave a comment for the gardeners, as the communication about the garden is another big piece in the children's learning process.
