Hello SPEC followers, environmentalists, gardening enthusiasts and anyone else who is reading this blog! My name is Emily, and I am the School Gardens Program intern for the Summer. I am in charge of maintaining the gardens at SPEC's partnership schools as well as leading elementary school children in fun garden and nature-themed activities. My goal is to involve the children in every level of the gardening process, including weeding, watering, planting, harvesting, and of course eating :)

I will use this blog as a place to document our progress as the summer passes; of course also including silly kid stories and the occasional recipe. I also set up an Instagram account to document our daily progress, so make sure you check it out!

The first harvest of the Summer!
