Helping your life story bloom
Garden Stories: Leadership Workshops provides interactive programs for children designed to:
- Heighten the children’s curiosity about gardening and nature
- Promote healthier life styles by learning more about food sources
- Increase children’s self-confidence and ability to collaborate with others
- Strengthen ties between the children’s organization, parents, community garden and other partners involved in our program
Garden Stories: Leadership Workshops works collaboratively under the ALF program umbrella.
At the end of the spring semester we created book from our drawings to show anyone and everyone and especially our parents everything that we learned. Both Scott and Nicole’s classes created a book. Please download and look at all of our accomplishments this spring.
A multidisciplinary art exhibit at Theater for The New City with works by 26 artists which runs from November 5, 2018-to January 2, 2019. The Gallery is open from 4-to 10pm Monday through Saturday and Sunday from 12-4pm.
The celebration known as Day of the Dead. It is not nearly as scary as it sounds.
We didn’t just create the pizza, we grew the veggies!
Gnocco’s staff showed the children how to create a pizza. We then all created pizzas together using herbs and vegetables we grew at Campos community Garden: oregeno, basil, thyme, marjoram and tomatoes.
Claudio and Rossella shows us how to make the pizza dough.
The dough is super elastic. Rosella stretched and stretched a little ball of dough to make a big pie. The dough was squishy when I poked at it.
The pizzas sure tasted super good. The children documented the process by drawing and writing in their notebooks.
You can see some of our drawing in the book we published at the end of the year:
Thse working bees are all girls? That’s fantastic.
Dan Rothchild came by and introduced us to bees. Did you know that all of the bees are girls? The queen bee lays all the eggs and the workers bee do all of the work. The drones freeload and the only thing they do is inseminate the queen at the very beginning of her life. Isn’t that typical. This is what Dan said.
Dan had the children draw different parts of the bee to understand how they work.
