We should landscape the backyard (outside of the education building) with planters, birdbath, bird houses maybe a summer garden for food, flowers, and herbs. Looking out of the window today in class I am struck with this idea and it seems like such a good one. Could be a learning experience in many ways i.e. gardening, being responsible for something that requires attention, an experience in lay term gratification, etc… (any ideas for class?).

. meditation garden . any project is good therapy–mental health


It seems like such a waste of space, all weedy and overgrown. It cries out for attention as I peer out the barred window. Bring some order to the chaos. Call it “the dandelion project”–something beautiful from something as plain as a weed
