A classroom where children not only learned their facts and figures, but also practiced patience, teamwork, and generosity. In this place, students gain a sense of purpose, an appreciation of nature, and practical skills like cooking and nurturing living things. This is our classroom - the garden and the kitchen.

This is the coolest place because you get to see what your food looks like coming out of the grounds. I see pictures in my textbook but this is the first time I have ever seen purple kale grow.
