The fun that comes from pruning back in the winter is making wreathes with garden clippings.
We used apricot and olive twigs and branches to make the frames, and then everyone went to town with mostly lavender and pine cones to decorate.
Many students took their creations home to share with family. Some left them in the school for others to enjoy.
Our thanksgiving wall expanded into a holiday wall strung with seed packets students had made from all that was grown last season, and fragrant lavender wreaths in all sizes.
To share the chidlren’s creativity we strung some of our fragrant garden decor in the attendance office, much to the delight and surprise of the staff and visiting parents.
