It was another beautiful day at the Lakewood garden. My fellow colleagues and I were in deep discussion about how thankful we are to have the Edible Peace Patch Project in our lives.
There are many beautiful species in the garden such as this monarch caterpillar and flower.
We mainly focused on pulling grass sedges and mulching. We really enjoy our kindergarten class, who are always enthusiastic to be in the garden. Today our lesson was on dirt. We began by talking about the sandy soil we have in Florida. Then we went over other various types of soil. The kids definitely enjoyed the dirt pile in the garden and loved holding the rolly polly bugs. I think it is good to have an educational component with the lesson, but more importantly that the kids are having fun.Julia Melton
