Hung out with this legend in Ayr on my way through. Ahmed is working at a local high school as a science teacher, but part of his self-prescribed curriculum includes designing and building with earth and growing the pants off of food in the school’s abundant permaculture garden. It’s good to know people like this are out there!

Here at the Moss Boss, there are few projects or challenges that we turn away from. 🙌🏻 Whether it’s a home garden, a workspace interior, or even, a preschool play area, much like our recent project, “Oakland Drive”, we’re always prepared to apply our skills in new ways, in order to satisfy whomever may occupy the space. 👌🏻 For this one, it was important to consider the values of a school environment: community, friendship and of course, growth in its every form. 🌱

Succulents.....from the supermarket carpark, previously stomped on and broken off by a thoughtless shopper walking on the garden beds, I gathered up all the broken pieces and will get them growing and plant out in our school garden. Like most succulents these Chalk sticks will grow roots easily and are very drought tolerant. Perfect for our school. Lucky I had just bought this cute little colander from the op shop to gather them up in. ♻️ #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #goingzerowaste #lowwaste #lowwasteliving #slowliving #simpleliving #simplelife #frugalliving #intentionalliving #consciousliving #lesswaste #wasteless #reducereuserecycle #reuse #plantcuttings #suculents #opshop #opshopfinds #schoolgarden #droughttolerant #droughttolerantplants #flowergarden #gardenlife #suculentlove

So many amazing volunteers today to set up the new drip line at the school garden!!! I’m overwhelmed that so many are willing to take time out of a busy Saturday to work in the BLAZING hot sun. Thank you Terry Wilmer for donating $$, Foodscaping Utah for rounding up volunteers and teaching a class about drip, and @kneaders for donating delicious sandwiches for lunch. Ogden is amazing, but really PEOPLE are amazing and generous. #schoolgarden #garden #growwhatyoueat #mastergardener #ogden #utah

Oh my Gourdness this is a wacky crop 😂Different from the Thanksgiving soft skinned variety, these hard skinned gourds dry to a wood-like durable texture. Gourds are NOT meant to be eaten, and instead are most valuable dried and stored. Gourds are sold to be made into bowls, planters, birdhouses, you name it. I grabbed a pack of loofah seeds (a type of gourd that makes those natural bath sponges) to plant next April and might be back for some craft projects! #summeragaz #schoolgarden #gourds #teachersinjune #ageducation

We’ve been growing these little bad boys outside our classroom and yesterday the kids started to harvest them. They were so excited to eat something they had grown themselves - it was a good day! 😊🙌🏻 🍓 #strawberry #strawberries #schoolkitchengarden #kitchengarden #schoolgarden #school #outdooreducation #learning #learn #educate #growyourown #growyourownfoods #allotmentlife #allotmentblog #allotment #allotments #allotmentlove #garden #gardening #rhs #horticulture #gardenharvest #harvest #yum #share #taste

Engage the Senses:⠀ ⠀ A major way gardening is an advantage to kids is by engaging their senses. The five senses allow children to effectively interact with their environment. This helps shape their development through the individual experiences they have with the world around them.⠀ ⠀ - Looking at the growing plants may foster within them a sense of appreciation for nature. ⠀ ⠀ - Touching the soil helps them learn about texture and communicate how it feels. ⠀ ⠀ - Smelling a flower helps them associate a scent with a positive and familiar memory.⠀ ⠀ - Listening to the sounds in the garden creates better listeners down the road. ⠀ ⠀ - Tasting fruit and veggies they grew themselves encourages them to try new foods in the future. ⠀ ⠀ So much can be learned through the five senses and a great place to start is the garden!🙌🌱⠀

Today I said goodbye to the school that took me in helped me replant my seeds and grow for the past four years (and let me grow their garden too!) They say things happen for a reason so off I go on a new adventure. Full of excitement but also full of sadness to say goodbye. Thanks for the memories and the friendships see ya later Stony 🐳 hello FC 👋🏼 #teacherlife #teacherproblems #namaste #namastebitches #theadventuresofjusttryingtobebetty #progressnotperfection #makinggains #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #swammer #recovery #mentalhealth #turnyourworldupsidedown #yogajourney #noplacelikehOMe #yogateacher #bekind #betrusting #kidsyoga #nerdatheart #elementaryteacher #teachersofinstagram #schoolgarden #outdoorclassroom #newadventures #garden #gardenlife #newopportunities

Project of the day at Old Town Elementary complete!! Decided to contribute to their beautiful gardens with this “sensory garden” full of sempervivums ( #henandchicks ) and sedum succulents! We decided on these plants since they are perennials and will come back each year! Excited to teach the students about these wonderful plants & cannot wait to see it fill in even more as they grow this summer! 🙏🏻💚🌱🌿🌵 #sensorygarden #schoolgarden #oldtownmaine #beforeandafter #volunteerproject #succulentsofinstagram #transformation #raisedbedgardening #wheelchairaccessible #kidsthatgarden #growsomething #plantladylife #mainelysucculents #mastergardeners

We got some new tomato plants today. While growing tomatoes from seed under the grow lights has been very educational, I started them way too late and they are still tiny and slow growing. Next year I will have to start them very early, or maybe they will self seed and we will have a selection! Go check out my story for our amazing garden progress. There are actual plants now!

Leave a Positive Trace at the Permaculture Action Day with @burningman in #Oakland , CA, on Saturday, June 22nd 10am-7pm. This is a day of community action at the Hoover Elementary School Garden, one of the most immersive and ecologically designed school gardens in the Bay Area. For the last three years, kindergarten through 5th-grade students have had the joy of play and class time in this nature-based learning environment—caring for the chickens, saving seeds, identifying edible and medicinal plants, building soil, and crafting. On SATURDAY JUNE 22ND we'll work on a number of hands-on projects in the garden, listen to live and DJ'd music, enjoy a number of workshops, and share food, beverages, and ice cream together. Get the details on the event page - https://www.facebook.com/events/361375144734361/ Web info page - http://www.permacultureaction.org/event/leave-a-positive-trace-permaculture-action-day-with-burning-man/ RSVP if you like - https://here.burningman.org/event/permaculture-action-day

I had a great week helping and hoping to grow the next generation! Started off creating some earth art with preschoolers at Bright Horizons, then hosting the Native American Indian Center summer youth program @fpconservatory to experience nature and art, hanging with @tigermushroomfarms Te'Lario Watkins and family and finally having a meeting of the minds discussing school garden best practices with educators @slowfoodreynschools over happy hour! #atmywork #youth #art #growingthenextgeneration #nature #tigermushroomfarms #family #slowfoodcolumbus #happyhour #schoolgarden #earthart #future #franklinparkconservatory #fpcchildrensgarden #create #brighthorizons #children #hope #schoolgardensofohio #naicco

Bringing you #foodprintsfriday on the last day of the school year for our 4,500 students across all wards of DC! Over summer break, we encourage families to continue cooking together at home! Including kids in the cooking process is one of the best ways to encourage more fruits and veggies in their diet. Our cheat sheet for cooking with kids: ——————————————————————— Be ready for kids to ask a lot of questions + make a mess! //Give your child simple tasks. Ask them to peel carrots, tear lettuce, or help stir or mix everything together. //Make your child’s kitchen tools easily accessible. // Make your child a Sous Chef - an important “assistant” who gets you ingredients from the cupboard or fridge, or reads you the recipe. // Let your child plan the menu for dinner once a week, then help them make it happen. //Put a stool in the kitchen so your child can stand with you at the counter or stovetop, or reach ingredients. //Have fun together! Learning to cook and eat new foods helps build stronger family bonds. ——————————————————————- Check out all our footprints recipes in our bio link 🥒
