We have been to garden class twice so far this year. The first class we learned the oli we will be chanting before coming into the garden each time. We also learned rules, safety, and how to put on gloves and use the tools. This week we learned about living and nonliving things. Students searched the garden for both things and sorted them into 2 buckets. Ms. Atay then helped us go through the buckets to make sure we were correct. Many students put green leaves in the living bucket and Ms. Atay helped us see that these things are no longer living because they are without their root source that allows them to get nutrients from the soil. However, she also had a clipping from an 'uala (sweet potato) plant and asked the students what will happen if she puts the clipping in a jar of water. Most of us predicted it will die since it was clipped from the original plant. We will see what happens at our next garden session!
