Last Tuesday afternoon the NFCMS students arrived in the biodome for the first time in 2010. Also, we had a new guest instructor, Webb Eavenson. Mark and I rounded out the team. Between the three of us and 50 students we touched on seasonal changes, climate, greenhouse design, the calculation of area using pi, we focused on our “customers”, and came up with a brief planting list.
The students have arrived!
Now we just need to build to build the beds.
For the past couple of weeks I have been meeting with some people at a local co-op to discuss collaboration. Through this collaboration, we are bringing local food into the classroom next week!!! We will focus on regionalism, nutrition, and diversity.
I am honored to be working with such dedicated citizens.
