Teaching Tuesday: Edible Garden at W.T. Woodson High School, Fairfax VA

It’s hard for me to find a more worthwhile endeavor than putting kids in gardens.

Teaching young people about the natural cycles of life, getting their hands dirty, showing them where food comes from? All of that is precious and valuable.

My friends Debby and Russell of Prior Unity Garden installed an edible courtyard garden today at W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, Virginia. Students from the school helped them plant the nut trees and berry bushes, then label them with signs explaining the species and their usefulness.

It was a gorgeous spring day in Virginia. Maybe more seeds than we know were planted today.

Save the World. Teach the Next Generation.

so how would YOU suggest we save the world today?
