Disfrutando de lo sencillo 

Pasan los días entre flores y capullos… En fin entre posibilidades y la magia de lo desconocido. Jamás dejaré de sentir ilusión por esto. Disfrutando de lo sencillo y haciendo la pausa cada día , cosecho alegría y salud mental y fisica.

Magic Beans

“Baby” G helping shell and playing with the beans, after eating cherry tomatoes from the garden! 


A Garden Education Gurú, Judy, who I met while working with school gardens in California, introduced me to Christmas Lima Beans, amongst many other heirloom seeds and tips for working with kids in the garden setting.  How grateful I am to have had the opportunity to work with her!

I have always thought of these seeds as magic beans and keep a few in my pocket in case I have the chance to pass them on to someone else who might plant them. So…. Just ask next time we see each other!

In Puerto Rico I have grown and collected a great amount and replanted the seeds.  ‘Baby’ G likes to help shell and sort them…and sometimes they spill all overall and then we race to pick them up.

Activities:

Once the child is old enough to keep out of mouth:

🌱  Planting the seeds / put in soil / may be fun for child to “plant and replant” in soil

🌱  Observing plant growth, watering, finding flowers, collecting seeds, shelling seeds

🌱  Sorting / with other seeds / into various containers

🌱  Counting the seeds using an ice cube tray

For older children:

🌱  Looking up recipes  & cooking the beans

🌱  Tracking plant growth / identifying cotyledons / measuring plant

En un mundo lleno de tanto odio mi corazon simple se llena de esperanzas.
Con la posibilidad de sembrar el amor a la tierra en nuestros niños.

Observing and Identifying

Kalemamá had a beautiful encounter with a Puerto Rican Tody  todus mexicanus while out hiking , returned home to sketch in my nature journal – from a field guide, but while out there, it allowed me to watch it and see its’ beautiful red throat for a few minutes!

It’s crazy how in that moment – I felt so connected, so alive, so happy to have chosen to get outside that day and explore and so inspired to continue to share nature activities with kids and others !

A walk in the Garden — berryvine

Increíbles imágenes de un mundo surreal….

 

I walk every morning in the garden. Its my favorite time of the day. Its easier in the summer to enjoy with out the heat. I love the sounds of the birds,the call of the hawks whose hunt I have interrupted, the look of the sun rays through the humid air, It’s all quite surreal […]

El Lado Positivo


Las cosas no siempre son lo que parecen. Necesito tiempo para contemplar lo que me rodea y apreciar los pequeñostesoros a mi alrededor.

Las bendiciones al igual que la belleza, estan sujetas a la percepción. Haz una pausa y búscale el lado positivo.
