First Grade Gardening

PRESENTED ON SEP 14, 2018
IN ASHEVILLE @ VOL 20

Heather Gast and Buzz Durham have gardened with children at Grace Covenant Church for about a decade and we decided to bring gardening into her classroom this past year. With a small grant, we set out on a garden adventure with Heather’s eighteen Weaverville First Grade Students. Our objectives were to introduce the students to issues of hunger and what we and others are and can do to ease those pains by growing your own food no matter your age….and to get our hands in the dirt in a way that these kids may not have done before!

Breaking Botanical

BY JORDAN SAMEK
@ VOL 13 ON NOV 05, 2016

Jordan Samek compares his own cancer experience (in humorous terms) to that of the character Walter White from his all-time favourite show, Breaking Bad. At 35 years old, he was a high school teacher with a young family, when he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. During his recovery from chemotherapy treatment, he found gardening, or maybe it finally found him in the spacious backyard of his newly acquired home in New Westminster. And he never returned to teaching. He became a stay at home parent for a while, re-formed and cultivated his gardens and yard, and started a business in landscaping and fence building. Gardening and landscaping reshaped the narrative of his life, while also healing him, and opened him up to the brilliance of botany.
