Another Year with the Dreamkeeper Garden!

Welcome back to another year with the Dreamkeeper Garden at Langston Hughes Academy Charter School! Our scholars are back, the sun is shining (sometimes a little too much!), and our garden is blooming and producing as intensely as this Louisiana summer will allow. Our harvest over the past few months has included crunchy cucumbers for pickles or salads, several varieties of eggplants, peppers, tomatoes, and summer squashes.

We have a lot of exciting things planned for this year. Our outdoor classroom is in it’s final stages of construction, and we cannot wait to share that space with our scholars. Our goats now have a grazing/play area for scholars to observe them in, whether in class or while waiting in line in the cafeteria. We’re in the process of planning exciting events for our scholars, with Watermelon Day (a personal favorite) coming right around the corner.

Our classes this year will feature primarily elementary school grades Kindergarten through Fourth. Scholars will be engaging in the garden in a variety of ways, from learning the basics of watering, becoming a member of the garden community, learning plant parts, and using the garden as a vehicle for teaching interdependence and respect. We’re opening up a prestigious internship program for middle school scholars to come out and work in the garden and help out with our lower school classes, setting a great example for our younger kids. We’re also working diligently with middle school science teachers to integrate their lessons to become more hands on in the garden.

We’re excited to add Zuri Obi and Eloise Reid as our Americorps and Garden Fellow for the 2014-2015 year. They’ve already been incredible additions to the Dreamkeeper garden team. We’ve already done a lot this year, but there is a lot of work left to be done. But with all the sweat from this humid New Orleans summer comes plenty of smiles like these that make it all worth while:
