     The Harvest Moon rose this Friday.  So named because its early moonrise over successive days provides extra light and more time for folks to gather their crops. It’s a penumbral eclipse that happened Friday after lunch (EDT), when the Moon won’t even be out.  You’d have to see it from Europe or Asia. This is the third penumbral eclipse this year. The Full Moon doesn’t change its appearance during a penumbral eclipse.  Sometimes there’s a very slight gray shading on one part of the Moon, but almost nobody notices.

    The Garden School is an outreach website that supports teachers, the development of outdoor classrooms, science, organic gardening, and ecology and conservation programs by providing resources, research, lesson plans, health, environmental updates, recipes, humor, music, art and fun things to do!
Keep your heart smiling, your soul shining and your spirit filled with passion.

If you think positively, sound becomes music, movement becomes dance, smile becomes laughter, mind becomes meditation, and life becomes a celebration!

Discovering a Flower
IMG1536.JPG

 There was a child went forth everyday, 
And the first object he looked upon, that object he became, 
And that object became part of him for the day or a certain part of the day,
Or for many years or stretching cycles of years. 
The early lilacs became part of this child,
And grass and white and red morning glories, and white and red clover,
and the song of the phoebe-bird,
And the Third-month lambs and the sow's pink-faint litter,
and the mare's foal and the cow's calf, . . .
                                                Walt Whitman                                                                    
 
 Nature isn't a place to visit, it is our home. The most effective way to connect our children to nature is to connect ourselves.
 "It is not half so important to know as to feel when introducing a young child to the natural world."  Rachel Carson 
 
 What is the extinction of a lily to a child who has never seen a flower ?   Robert Michael Pyle
 
 "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." ~ Albert Einstein
