Home Gardens and Car Free Day!

Hanney's home garden!
Hanney's home garden!

This is Hanney's home garden project! Hanney is in fifth grade. She is an incredibly bright scholarship student who loves folkloric dance and English class. Her family has very limited space to make their home garden but they have found new and recycled materials to plant their vegetables in and I can imagine the excitement on Hanney's face when she first tastes her home grown cucumbers! Cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes grow really easily here and our students are learning to save their seeds from the vegetables they consume. 

The home garden is one of the new activites we have included into our Environmental Education Program. We've had to change our plans completely, and they continue to change as the year goes on. This hands-on learning project opens up exciting discussion about organic vs. not organic, the importance of being sustainable or buying local, and the natural science of plant growth. What I especially love about this project is that each family as made the home garden work, no matter what the size of their yard! 

The other new activity will be a series of livestream story-time with environment-themed books. I will be reading our first story, "La Pelota Azul" on September 22 at 11:30 AM (Ecuador time) to celebrate World Car Free Day. The students will then be encouraged to participate in a drawing contest expressing what they learned from the story and the winner will receive a prize donated by a local family in Quito. Please join us on our Facebook Page (link below) to hear the story and see fun comments from our families!
