This blog follows the building, cultivating, and harvesting of the Sanderlin IB World School schoolyard garden in St. Petersburg, Florida. Since January 2009, the Edible Peace Patch Project has been developing innovative community-oriented food system and nutrition educational programs in south St. Petersburg, Florida. Sanderlin is the 2nd school to participate in our Garden Education Program.
The weather has been great this week at the garden. The lesson plan for this week involved teaching the children different plant parts according to their grade level. It was nice reading through the lesson plans for the children, because it refreshed my memory of plant parts I had forgotten. The picture to the left is not the best quality and it looks like there is not much vegetation, however, the bed that is closer has raspberry plant growing along with mint, chocolate mint and planted around with lavender. That is going to be a great aromatic bed once the plants grow larger. The shift this week involved planting more seed, transplanting the mint plants, planting pineapples, of course weeding, and watering.
