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.
This week in our garden we got to learn all about bugs, and why they are super important for our garden to remain healthy and thriving. Our students were not exactly thrilled with our week's topic, but they quickly warmed up to our creepy crawly friends after a few discoveries. Unfortunately it seems the bugs were in no mood for playing because we hardly found any.
We did find that some of our cucumber is growing and that our watermelon looks better than ever. The children are exited for next week, and so are we! These kids are so caring and exited to learn that the rough Friday morning meetings and hot afternoon lessons don't even bother us. Can't wait to teach them more cool lessons about our garden!
