I just arrived home from a lovely afternoon in the Garden. This is technically month number three of Children's Stories in the Garden at the Micheltorena Elementary School Garden. (The first event was rained out.) Children's Stories in the Garden involves myself and a few friends leading an activity and read along for kids while their parents help garden.
Today my friend Rick led the activities. We read Brave Potatoes
by Toby Speed. In this book, the Potatoes lead a revolt against an evil chef. The kids loved it and we ended up reading it three times!
Rick also showed us how to grow our own potatoes. We used an old tire, a mixture of dirt and compost, and sliced up some potatoes. It was lots of fun!
Our next event is Saturday, March 10th. I hope you can join us!
