When Ezra is in his summer frame of mind, it’s not easy getting my boy to leave the couch and stop his reading and go off to another place for ‘camp’ daily. This year we got him into a day camp at the school that he will be newly attending in the fall. We figured this was a good way to get him familiar with the place and – as it turned out – he got to ‘put his mark’ on the place a bit as well by fixing up the building’s roof garden. He had a wonderful experience with the Urban Design and Sustainability Program via Beyond Organic Design (see him sawing some wood in the blog here!) He was so proud of the ‘Amelia’s Garden’ mural that he painted, as well as bird houses he made and we were so amazed by how much compost, gardening, and natural pest removal info he has in his head now!
