Recently I made this imovie about the entire garden project for a grant proposal. I think it tells the story quite succinctly, and I hope you’ll enjoy it! (By the way, it has been a HUGE week in the garden with lots of great stories to tell but I’ll have to wait to recover from it all to tell them. Good stuff coming!)
A wonderful walk down memory lane! You are truly an inspiration to all who pass your way. P.S. Update on the grant??? Love you MOM
Tricia- lovely video of a FABULOUS project. You are so inspiring!
Hey Margot, Thanks for loving it with me! One day I’ll give you a personal tour when you come to CA!
Tricia–beautiful job! So well done! Thank you for all your hard work! 🙂 Our campus is truly enriched by all that you inspire kids to dream and do!
Thank you for always being so encouraging! I really appreciate these words. You too are a gift to the children of Julian. 🙂
Stunning…from concept through execution. What a wonderful gift for the children and the community.
Stunning is such a nice word. Thank you so much for your feedback.
When a determined spirit meets an unused opportunity then something has to happen !!!RMK.
That is often the way of things….. Thanks for reading/watching!
Wow. You’ve had a big week! Take a little rest.
I thought the junior high tournament would be a bit of a rest (sitting down all day, not directing anything) but it wasn’t! Too exciting!
Beautiful! Your program is well rounded in both community and academics. A lot of hard work on your part shown as well. Keep up the great program.
Thanks! I continue to follow all of the good you do too! My sister lives in the Bay Area, so one day I want to visit. (You’re welcome here too if you come toward San Diego!)
Beautiful! You have so many lovely community programs and after school programs. A lot of hard work shown there.
Beautiful Tricia. So nice to see it all put together. An inspiration to all mom’s and dad’s out there to see what can be accomplished in the public school system.
Thanks Megan. I so appreciate the encouragement, especially from non-bloggy friends like yourself! Hope you enjoyed Applepalooza!
Wonderful and inspiring on so many levels…..
Thanks!!! What a joy to see you at Applepalooza. It’s been a palooza of a week, that’s for sure!
I hope you get the $$! Maybe offer a honeysuckle teepee starter kit as a thank you gift?
Turns out we did NOT–found out today. (sniff.) Didn’t want to spoil the post with that bummer of an admission. But thanks for pulling for us. 🙂
Nancy and I just sat here, BEAMING (weeping a little bit). We are so proud of you
Tricia. We marvel at how the elementary school community and the larger Julian community transformed that little forgotten piece of broken blacktop into a life giving place chock full of possibilities: academic, social, artistic, virtuous and gastronomic. That place and those people will never be the same. Thank you for inspiring us to a better life.
gobble, gobble, gobble…I am SLURPING up these good, sweet words. All the sweeter coming from you, my dear ones. Thank you so very much.
echo echo echo echo Couldn’t have said it better. Drew can speak for me just fine. Tricia, you’ve done it again. So proud of you and your crew.
Well done my daughter…..dad
Thanks Dad! Lots of photos of your grandson in there!
