First graders were busily observing and recording their impressions of our garden yesterday afternoon. Armed with clipboards and pencils they were milling about everywhere and taking big risks, learning about edible flowers, vegetables and fruits. They were so proud of their first attempts at creating a symbolic record of what they saw. I wonder how many of them might one day become scientists…..or writers!

I have been an elementary teacher at the Westminster Center School for 30 years. For most of those years, I maintained a garden as part of my teaching curriculum resource. Now I am the Garden Coordinator for all of the Westminster Center School classrooms.
