Decorating for the Holidays!

Our dry collection of fennel and corn varieties serve as the back drop to seed packets made by all the students from this years crop of heirloom varieties of carrots, corn, wheat and barley. All strung up in the garden, for a few weeks display before the kids each take a packet home to add to their holiday decor, stuff in stockings or simply gift family and friends with what they have grown, harvested, and saved some seeds for next years crop!

A job well done complete with planting instructions and names of made up seed companies!

Tahereh Sheerazie

Tahereh likes to hike, bike, quilt, cook and most of all garden. She has been a garden ranger with EnrichLa since January 2015. She teaches middle school children, many of whom have special needs which has necessitated a slow, mindful approach to place based garden education. Improving soil, making compost, harvesting water, growing natives and ancient grains and journal writing, is what she enjoys doing most with the children.
