As summer sunshine gives way to dew drenched autumn mornings, we too transition into a rhythm of learning, working and playing together at Homestead. Welcome families to the first week in which we begin our study of plant cycles with a story about children and sunflowers.
On Thursday, September 26 at 5:30 PM we gather to celebrate autumn equinox. We will hopefully be pressing apples so bring a bag (or 2 or 3 or more) of apples and a mason jar. Hope to see the whole family (grandparents and special friends are welcome too). We will begin with a circle of gratitude followed by soup and toasted sun seeds.
In this lesson block will be referencing Thomas Elper's, Botany in a Day and Caduto/Bruchac's Keeper's of Life, Discovering Plants Through Native American Stories.
