Our spring season of programming is wrapping up for the summer break, but stay tuned for more on the many things we have sprouting at Seed Street this summer!
This week at Seed Street was bitter sweet! Our Grow, Move and Create programming wrapped up with capstone celebrations of all that our students learned and accomplished this spring season. We are sad to be saying goodbye to our friends and the extraordinary students at the Children’s Aid Society but are looking forward to the next season of growing this summer.
The week began with Move. Class was packed, as our 3rd 4th and 5th grade participants all came in for the final celebration. Each of our budding yogis received their own yoga mat to facilitate a continued, at-home and at-life yoga practice, also with a t-shirt reviewing the Chakras. Our amazing lead yoga teacher Karen led the whole group in a final shared practice, and the Seed Street students gave lots of help modeling key poses for class.
On Thursday, we hosted our Entrepreneurship Fair with our Create teams. The energy level was high in the final minutes leading up to the Entrepreneurship Fair, as each team was excited to put the final touches on their presentation boards and polish their business pitches! Team spirit was also shining brightly, as each team enthusiastically showed off t-shirts embossed with their team’s original business logos.
Finally, everything came full circle in our Grow session on Friday. The sun was shining and everyone worked together to transplant tomato cuttings that had rooted hydroponically into potting soil. These tomato plants will eventually live on the roof of our container garden, soaking up maximum sunlight. We wrapped up with a special gift of recipe books to all of our students and participants, chronicling all of the learning and growing we did over the last few months and highlighting favorite leafy-greens recipes from our students that were inspired by our time in garden. It was moving to see our students reflect upon this growing season as they flipped through the pages of the book.
