GARDEN GUARDIANS (Grades 1-3)
WEDNESDAYS | 2:40-3:40pm
Location: Room 205
Instructor: Victor Kusmin, Driscoll dad of Zara(3Z) and Zippy(2G)
Proceeds from this class tuition will support the development of additional programming in your school garden. As we are just beginning our school year, our growing season is approaching its end. It’s time to finish the summer harvest, and make way for fall crops. Students will roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty as they feed the soil, sow the seeds, and nurture the web of life in the garden. Mostly we will play with soil, plants, and other garden inhabitants. But they will also measure and record as they observe plant anatomy and schoolyard ecology. They will create signage, art, and engineered solutions for the garden. They will develop their own concepts for the garden and outdoor classroom. We may even squeeze in: cooking the harvest, learning about the the origins of domesticated crops, and gorilla gardening as civic action. Through all these activities (establishing a connection to the garden, investing in its growth, participating in its design), the students will be contributing to the development of the garden into a hands-on outdoor classroom the entire school community will utilize and be proud of.
