Moving from Summer to Fall- School Tours at EcoHouse

Wow that felt like the fastest summer ever for me, how about you? So here we are trying to get back into the school routines. Packing lunches, getting to class on time and lots of sitting. How about a great school trip to get the students (and teachers) moving and excited about what they are learning about. We have great programming that is engaging for all grades – including High School!
I get to do the fun stuff and work outside with the kids and we play in the dirt. We mix up Seed bombs, help weed invasive plants or try to identify what food that might be growing in our Community Garden. Seed bombs are my favorite activity with the kids. When I tell them they have to use their hands to mix up seeds, clay and soil they reactions are loud and honest. There’s lots of “ewwwws” but also some “Yes!”. I normally ask them “Who lives on the Earth?” Everybody! “Who needs to take care of the Earth?” Everybody! “Who needs to get their hands dirty?” Everybody! I want them to have fun but still understand how important it is for every one of us to do our part.

Groups might be making paper, running the Waste Race, they might even get to be the Mayor in a town hall meeting! We know how much of a challenge it can be to find school trips that both meet the required curriculum and are engaging for the kids. At the Eco House we can help everyone meet their goals and have a great time.

I look forward to meeting you all!!!
