Square foot gardening

Measuring, and dividing space, assessing companion and seasonal vegetables, and reading seed packets accurately made up our unit on square foot gardening. Were not there yet but very close. Most children have managed to plant x # of rows in each square foot assigned per child but connecting the dots between plant spacing is taking more time than one session.

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.
