The Arugula room is buzzing with activity. We have been working hard in our garden, taking care of the many plants that have begun to bloom, sweeping and scrubbing the stepping stones, and pulling weeds. We have also been enjoying our new sand table that Owen’s family donated (Thanks so much!). We found the perfect place for it in the courtyard!
In the classroom we have been talking about the upcoming art show that the extended day children are creating art for (June 5th at Cannibals in NW Portland). All of the art will be made out of recycled materials. Every day we have been trying to come up with new ways to save the earth and stop pollution. We also found the perfect bucket for our compost, so we can use our food scraps to help the garden grow!
We are so happy to welcome Eileen to our classroom. In addition to her love of children and working at Puddletown, she is currently part of the Elderberry School of Botanical Medicine, and is looking forward to sharing her knowledge of herbs and edible plants, as well as her love for yoga, biking, rock climbing, hiking, reading, and writing!
