Yesterday - Monday May 30th, 2011 - we had our first class out in the garden getting their hands dirty. Pierre Walter's class on Environmental Philosophy and Education came out and spent the afternoon in the garden, harvesting radishes and spinach, preparing and planting a few beds of different lettuces. The spinach looked and tasted amazing.
All the students left with a bushel of radishes and a bag of spinach, and hopefully a greater understanding of the importance of garden based/outdoor education and it's role in environmental education. We are hoping to have one of the students help us with the Chinese Market Garden project we are currently designing and building.
