“However many years she lived, Mary always felt that ‘she should never forget that first morning when her garden began to grow’.”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

There are so many amazing books with garden themes, and so many life lessons in them. Here is a collage of my garden (organic, as you can see by some of the leaves). Finally, the tomatoes are getting ripe!

Gardening is a great way to learn “hands on,” and I have been fortunate enough to have a school garden at a couple schools where I have worked. The kids were so interested and involved! Even if in pots, try incorporating a garden into your teaching.
