Garden Day

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty


Today my daughter’s class went to their garden.  When Halle got home from school, she handed me her produce and announced, “tonight, I’d like mashed potatoes with dinner please.”  


Later, scooping her second helping of mashed potatoes on her plate, she told us about Mr. Gilliam’s preachings (as she put it).  She told us that every garden day he gives them a “preaching” which made me smile.  She said he taught them that they will always harvest exactly what they plant.  She went on to explain that if you plant happiness seeds, you’ll get happiness.  

Thank you Mr. Gilliam for the seeds you are planting in our children.

There's something about a garden that's sooo Zen... a microcosm of nature if you will. :)

Come see my blog garden... 


Love and light,

Wow they still go on field trips to farms etc. I keep hearing we have an obesity problem in schools but I think it is in Washington for sure.

Our private school actually has their own garden center and each class plants, pulls weeds, composts, throughout the year.  I have seen another public elementary school in Austin with quite an established garden as well. So nice to get the kids outside digging in the dirt.
