The Gardens and Orchards
Children learn best with their hands in the dirt. We see this over and over in their gardens and orchards. Each child gets their own garden bed for growing radishes, cabbages, chard, watermelons…whatever they find in our big box of seeds which looks good to them. For many, this is the first time they have had control over something in their lives. It gets very intense!
It is in their gardens and orchard they put into practice their new information they learned in the class. It is here they also are taught to see messages of love from God. When water was caught on a broccoli leaf and pooled in the shape of a little sparkling heart, their teacher called the children to come see the valentine to them from God.
