Art in the Garden

It’s been a rainy week at the Burns School Garden!

In order to stay out of the mud, this week we did a botany/art workshop in the garden with kindergarteners!

This summer we spent over a month removing small shards of glass from this planter that were left over from an old construction project on the building. Now it’s full of greens!

More photos after the break:

The students drew loose-leaf lettuce, kale, swiss chard, and arugula.

We talked about how the the plant gets water and sunlight (and how the orange trees on the ground used to take in sun for the big trees overhead)

(Under his drawing there is a creative spelling of “the garden is beautiful”)

What a beautiful afternoon.
