Gardening through Seasons
Gardening Through The Seasons
Our gardening centered nature program will be meeting every Friday during the school year at Raphael Springs school. This Waldorf inspired nature school uses gardening through the seasons as a way to allow the students to develop a deeper appreciation for and awareness of the human being’s relationship to the natural world. By caring for the garden, experiencing the growth of plants, and harvesting what they give us, the students develop a deeper consciousness and appreciation for the earth and learn life long skills.
We will explore activities like growing and caring for plants, herbalism, nature stories, arts, wild-crafting, harvesting and preparing snacks, nature based games and unstructured time to play in nature. The class will follow the same rhythm each week with varying themes and activities as the season and garden change.
