Native American Plants and Garden-based teaching,

This year I started a new class project. My co-teacher wanted to do a garden’s based project, so when I was at SEAC, I teamed up with Liz Horton and started talking to her about the Plum Bayou Garden in Arkansas, and all of the cool EAC plants she had going.  She shared a ton of seeds with me, and I started teaching my kiddos about indigenous forms of gathering, agriculture, and we made up a project where they planted seeds, tended gardens, and wrote both historically and creatively about their garden’s based work. Some students came up with music, dance, and sculpture about their garden.  Once the school year is over, I’ll try to write more up and share it, but in the meantime, enjoy these pics!
