What a great opportunity you have given us! We are using this Tower Garden as a Library Tower. Currently, the teachers over at an elementary school have it up and running! The project based learning students got to set it up, seed the plants and transplant. Now it is growing in the library to be showcased for learning observations. The one thing that I was excited to see was the librarian using it to teach mindfulness. How important is that! When do our kids ever get exposed to the idea of nurturing and caring for something that will be a source of wellness and nutrition for their bodies in return! What an exemplary way of teaching the cycle of energy in our own human existence!
The joy I find is realizing that when we plant a seed, we are setting our hope in the future to know we need to prepare for the good and bad. We plant more than one of each plant, we think about the placement on the tower, why one will grow faster than others and yet be just as important!
Stephen Ritz says, "kids don't need sugar to know they did a good job!" He is so spot on! Kids need to know hope for tomorrow in the things they do today! That is GREAT work!
How can we keep sharing this message? One Tower of Growth at a TIME!
