It’s March in the garden, and it couldn’t be prettier. Stroll with me.
Carmen from Julian Pathways led the effort to start a monthly “have lunch with your parent in the garden” event. The first attempt was an unqualified success with over 50 students and parents sharing a meal on Friday afternoon.
Our Harvest of the Month is citrus. Citrus doesn’t grow in Julian so we tasted delicious grapefruit from the “neighboring” town of Borrego.
The breast cancer awareness ribbon is in full bloom! Photo courtesy of 6th grade student Avery McFedries.
Miss Lynn recently spruced up the gazebo with a new “coffee table,” pillows and a thorough cleaning.
She also tucks these little things around the garden. I love discovering them.
Pediatric residents from UCSD do part of their community health rotation at our district, through Pathways. Garden Ambassadors, decked out in St. Patrick’s attire, give the doc a tour.
We added a geranium to the new mailbox to match the flag.
Second grade students seeded this new circular bed and wagon with California wildflowers.
After the rains, one of the garden volunteers found this on the back slope of the garden. We’re thinking bobcat?
It was the garden’s turn to make a display for the front office.
Julian kids get to plant a lot of daffodils but they rarely get to go back and pick them. I had students make “surprise” bouquets for their teachers from flowers in the garden.
I’ll close with a link that captures our teacher “flash mob” last October on National Food Day. “We can change the world”—not just a pop song! The truth! (Right, Susi?)
