Student Made Garden Structures! The Summative Assessment task for the Grade 2 unit is to design something for a purpose. Students have been learning about structures and properties of materials. They used this knowledge to build beautiful and functional structures for our Learning Gardens. I love how different each structure is and happy to see that this year's structures are stronger and more stable than last years. (Perhaps the teachers are learning too 😉) Today is the start of our 3 week winter break and I'm sure these structures will be full of climbing plants when we return! . . . . #studentled #action #designprocess #STEM #schoolgardens #learninggardens #mydubai #schoolgardencompetition #teachersofdubai #ibpyp #ibworldschool #inquiry #sustainableschool #projectbasedlearning #communitygarden

We believe that fun garden activities are powerful teaching tools. Children love digging in the dirt so why not dig with a purpose? ❤️ With a shovel, soft soil, and a snapdragon, these students learned about shape and size today. Each student was given a 4” pot and asked to dig a hole deep enough for their plant. With a little trial and error and some patience they found the correct depth for their hole. ❤️ Activities and experiences that are enjoyable, like gardening, often make the most memorable lessons. ❤️ . . . #schoolgardens #schoolgarden #outdoorclassroom #garden #gardening #planting #snapdragons #digging #preschool #preschoolteacher #organic #raisedbeds #raisedbed #fallflowers #happykids #learning #outdooreducation #stemeducation #organicgardening #gooutside #nature #scienceeducation #gardeningwithkids

Don’t be fooled by the top photo! That was last year (17 Dec) and the salad bar had been open for a week by then. This year... we planted ONE WEEK EARLIER for the CAPES beds and then went into mid-winter conditions for weeks. The forecast looks good for major growth over the next 10 days. Salads by New Year anyway? #oscapesagriculture #schoolgardens #wintergardening

At S. Ellen Jones today playing Fruit and Veggie Bingo and planting mircogreens. See those littles? They are a class of Pre-K. One of the boys told me that his mom had said ‘Yuck’ to a food that she didn’t like. He told her that we say don’t say yuck, we say ‘I don’t like it yet’ ❤️❤️❤️❤️Look at that! Making an impact in our little world. #makingadifference #lovewhatyoudo #schoolgardens #howitgrows #edibleeducation #volunteering #letuslearnky #southernindiana #floydcountyindiana

Yesterday students made salsa verde using their tomatillo harvest. One 8th grader said: “It’s funny because I would never eat any of this stuff at home—I’m a super picky eater!—but here in the garden I’ve been trying everything and actually liking it.” Awesome!! That's what we like to hear. 😊 @lokelaniintermediateschool #schoolgardens

Our Christmas gift from the Principal this year was plants for the gardens surrounding our staffroom. It was hot out there planting them and I couldn’t bend down (being very pregnant) so I just supervised. #qldteachers #christmasgifts #schoolgardens

When a bunny named Coco lives in your school garden thinning carrot seedlings becomes a lot more exciting! These preschoolers were very interested to see that Coco was happy eating just the leaves and stems of their tiny carrots. 🥕 There’s nothing sweeter than watching children who are in love with their school pet. Learning to be gentle and how to feed and care for a pet are wonderful life long lessons. 🥕 At Westlake, organic vegetables are grown for students to enjoy and to share. ♥️ . . . . #schoolgarden #bunny #outdoorclassroom #outdooreducation #organicveggies #schoolpet #preschool #schoolgardens #garden #gardening #carrots #organicgardening #love #thinning #gardeningwithkids #kidsgardening #gooutside #sweetkids #fall #mondaymotivation #bunniesofinstagram #happykids #stemeducation #nature #pets #lovelearning

Enter the Dragon! Ha, not quite. Here's one of our garden residents enjoying some sunshine. We call this Blue Tongue lizard Grandpa. He looks old, is pretty slow and could be up to 20yrs old.

Late post, but this week we got to harvest some produce from our school garden that we’ve been taking care of. We even cooked eggplant lasagna with our basil and tomatoes (forgot to take a picture). #schoolgardens #garden #maui

Can't believe it was a week ago that I was was in Curaçao and met Muriel at her kitchen on the grounds of a farm. @murielskitchencuracao we sat on the terrace surrounded by all shades of green bushes that's attracted not only the butterflies but also the donkeys and goats. It felt a wonderful place. The kitchen itself is a one room house painted brickred and there was a pumpkin pancake recipe chalked on the blackboard door- this is my plan to make them this week!!! we had a good talk about plastic pollution and littering. We also talked about food from garden to table as project for children. I am going to tell my school about Muriel as we have a vegetable garden too and it would be nice to swap ideas as a hands over the seas project!! I am looking forward to this friendship:-) #lillysplasticpickup #murielskitchen #schoolgardens #vegetables #healthyeating #childrensgardens #gardentotable #curacao @murielskitchencuracao

Bluebonnet leaves are beautiful after the rain. The water drops that settle in the center of each leaf look just like diamonds🌧 We love taking time for students to enjoy and experience nature during Garden Day. Learning doesn’t always translate to paper and pencil. Touching and making connections are what some of the best memories are made of. 💙🌈💙🌈💙🌈💙 . . . . . #garden #schoolgarden #schoolgardens #outdoorclassroom #GardenDay #elementaryschool #elementary #gardening #rain #leaves #bluebonnets #containergardening #epicgardening #gardeningwithkids #kidsgardening #learning #organicgardening #stemeducation #science #watercycle

Our green beans are ready and are super tasty but I'm not sure why the leaves are all turning yellow and brown? What nutrient are we lacking? Or are we overwatering? Love the mystery that gardens bring every year! So much natural inquiry for students and teachers. Tonight's homework is to find out what could be wrong with our beans and how we can help them.😊 #neverstoplearning #teacherhomework #schoolgardens #ibworldschool #gardenclub #growwhatyoueat #organicgarden #inquiry #teachsustainability

#repost "Council pick ups cause chaos around our area as all manner of people scour other peoples trash to turn it in to treasure. I saw a couple of hessian sacks on the side of the road so they became mine instead of landfill. One became a snuggly blanket for my worms (as the other had disintegrated) and this one became a potato paddock. Just added some sprouted spuds and some left over potting mix plus premium soil made by my worms from garden scraps and leave nature to work it’s magic!"- Totally honoured to share the grower community with sustainable and waste conscious individuals! 👏🏻👊🏻🌱 #urbangrower #permaculturegarden #homegrownveg #sustainablegardening #eatwhatyougrow #cityfarming #ediblegardening #gardensforkids #schoolgardens #innercityfarms #backyardgardening #backyardveggies #growitlocal #canyoudigit ( #📷 @water_ups )

Permaculture 2 day workshop at African Children’s choir just finished. Thanks to everyone who are supporting these programs. Believe me - it is totally worthwhile. Our fundraising website is still open (https://ethosfoundation.org.au).What an amazing two days of learning and sharing. My two children and I helped make a new kitchen garden with in-situ composting, mulching, contour pathways to collect rain and a poly culture of perennials that are suited and appropriate. We planted legumes, medicinals, teas, mulch plants, leafy greens, salad vegetables - using non-hybrid seeds. The seeds were donated from @greenharvestgardening and a full set of curriculum and teacher guides were donated to the library from @sakgf #permacultureafrica #permaculture #permaculturedesign #permaculturegarden #sakgf #schoolgarden #schoolgardens #ethosfoundation #permacultureeducationinstitute #permaculturelife #ourpermaculturelife #volunteering #uganda #worldschooling

The weather forecast was for 💯 rain all day. Pretty disappointing when you’re 7. ☔️ So yesterday during every break from the hard rain we hurried out to the garden to explore! A little drizzle was a welcomed experience. ☔️ Baby carrots were thinned, radishes harvested, and everyone was excited about our sprouting pumpkin! ☔️ . . . #garden #bestschool #experience #schoolgarden #schoolgardens #outdoorclassroom #Gardenday #stemeducation #instagardens #organicveggies #epicgardening #rainyday #saturday #gooutside #kids #organic #rain #pumpkin #raisedbeds #containergarden #containergardening #lovemyjob #elementaryschool

A beautiful pumpkin gift from the Harpeth Hall Middle School garden. I’m so grateful for teachers who instill a love for the natural world in their students! The seeds for this pumpkin came from Jeff Poppen’s collection of saved seed. It looks to me like it was originally a Long Island Cheese pumpkin, which would put it in the Cucurbita moschata genus (the same as butternut) that does really well in our region. I’m very excited to taste this one. 😋 #schoolgardens #pumpkin

Children who learn to garden learn to eat healthier. Abby grew her first place tomatoes in an Eco Garden System. She is very active through out the season in all activities which leaves little time for gardening. She loved gardening in the system so much she shared her vegetables with all her friends! 🥦🍅🥕 #schoolgardens #gardeningwithkids #gardendifferent

Students at Lokelani Intermediate School made Swiss chard and kale salad this week. It turned out delicious, and they couldn’t stop saying how much they liked it! We're always excited to see kids eating healthy foods, and activities like this support our mission to "cultivate healthier communities by strengthening local agriculture and improving access to nutritious, affordable food," one garden at a time! #schoolgardens @lokelaniintermediateschool

These are the amazing growers at Bairds Mainfreight Primary School! Not only have they been growing a bumper harvest, at the same time they have been fundraising to “pay it forward” and get another school growing. We picked up a cheque today for $805.84, which will be put towards the Everglade Primary School build in 2019 🌱😃 #okecharity #gardeningnz #greenthumb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° #kiwikids #growingafuture #nzgarden #gardeningtips #mygardentoday #gardenstyle #loveyourgarden #outdoorlearning #outdoorclassroom #gardeningwithkids #natureplay #raisedbedgardening #urbangarden #growyourownfood #natureclassroom #ediblegarden #gramyourgarden #kiwikids #gardeningkids #nzcharity #growingawesomelittlehumans #schoolgardens #thankyounz #gardentherapy
