Welcome parents, teachers, students and garden friends to the Explorer Elementary Charter School Teaching Garden Weblog. I am the Garden Coordinator in our school garden. I am also a teacher and environmental educator by training, a freelance writer, and the mother of two wonderful Explorer students. This blog is to help the Explorer community stay connected to what is happening in the school garden. I’ll include information about what students are discovering in the garden, as well as photos of what is growing. I’ll also post information about work days, volunteer needs, amazing discoveries — such as the milkweed bush we planted last year that was covered with Monarch caterpillars the first day of school — and more. My goal is to update the blog weekly, so visit the site often and check out the latest garden news!
