IOP presentation

Yesterday Julia, Chessa and I had the honor of presenting this project at the IOP (Investigating Our Practices) Conference in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy at UBC.  We each contributed to a shared power point covering the history of school gardens, the experiences/benefits/challenges of teaching in a garden, and the up-to-date details of this ongoing project.  Check out our 'Publications' tab to view this presentation.
Although it was a modest group, we received constructive feedback and inspiration, especially from Dr. Anne Phelan.  We look forward to sharing our ideas and engaging in future conversations such as these.

As for the garden...  hopefully yesterday's insane hail (in May!) didn't wash away all the lovely lettuce seeds...
