Thanksgiving and Mindfulness

FIMG_1369or our Thanksgiving lesson this year we talked about the bounty of the garden & nature. We filled a basket with seasonal produce Рbutternut squash, sweet potatoes, dried corn, garlic, and herbs Рand discussed how many of the foods we see at Thanksgiving are roots and seeds. They are foods that store well and are often harvested near the end of the growing season. Some vidstitch_image_082957_20150106things change with time, but the seasons and foods available, no matter how technological we become, are much the same regionally  (barring greenhouses and transfer trucks.) Fall is a time of bounty and we are so thankful to be able to share food together that we have grown with the help of rain, sun, microbes, and all manner of other creatures.

Students crunched away on some delicious carrots before break and contemplated mindfulness and gratitude while they ate.
