What does it mean to be a steward? Every Tuesday for 10 weeks, students will make decisions about and take part in stewardship projects on Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetlands that benefit the wellbeing of all those who call this place home!
Students will collect and record data through observation, research, community interviews, and more. Using this data and students’ own personal library of knowledge, we will propose, refine, and implement stewardship efforts through the farm. Along the way, we will make tea, share stories, play garden games, and help prepare the garden for spring. Through these experiences, we will develop our reciprocal relationship with the land, learn about plant and animal knowledge, and practice caring for land as the land cares for us.
