As spring exhibits its vigor, so do the children. Adding to and turning compost piles, observing rapid growth and understanding how the earth comes back to life after the winters rest are all exciting times on a Friday morning.

The first artichoke buds have bloomed. The year portends an abundant harvest.

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.
