Jacob’s Garden, is a service learning project, using the arts/science and nature play. Students facilitated a design charette to discuss how they wanted to improve the physical environment of their school. Bringing a beautification project such as container gardening and raised beds promotes the power of “greening” at their school and in the surrounding community.
"Ubuntu" is an African wise saying: " I AM because we are." This is the second year of the of the school/community garden project, and the volunteers and interest of the teachers has doubled. This year eight container gardens will be designed and installed by the primary classes- Pre-K thru 3rd grade.
Positive Vibration Garden Project at the Switching Station Artist Lofts is still growing lovely, and the mural is still vibrant. I am no longer the gardener the Switching Station, but feel free to drive by and see how the garden is growing.
