In designing activities for pre-schoolers we thought “what better way to get everyone excited than by making passports for our adventure.” Safe to say they loved it and filled it with stickers and things from our travels ✈️ 🚣‍♀️ 🚶‍♀️ 🚲 . . #natureeducation #farmbasededucation #gooutside #optoutside #children #education #nature #farm #passportready #travel

At the turn of the 20th century Austin, Texas, was a melting pot of Czechs, Mexicans, Germans and Swedes seeking a better life. The Bergstroms -- three Swedish brothers who had emigrated together -- bought adjoining tracts in east Austin to start farms for their growing families. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today, despite encroaching development, the Bergstrom’s Big Red Barn and yellow farmhouse still stands and serves as the iconic headquarters for Green Gate Farms’s five-acre certified organic, community farm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the heart of Green Gate Farms educational initiatives are its camps for children and adults and its many partnerships with schools and youth-based organizations. A partnership with Austin Jewish Academy is one of our most creative endeavors: every Friday fifth graders take the lead in setting up the farm stand, caring for livestock, greeting customers, managing compost, and doing fieldwork. Joint lesson plans with teacher Karen Hidalgo also ensures that children use the farm for hands-on academics. During Austin’s recent historic flooding in October, students studied the farm’s topography and created watershed models to better understand why the entire city had to boil water for nearly a week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Problem-solving with resources at hand is another important aspect of our farm curriculum. Whether it’s upcycling wooden pallets for newborn bunny housing or figuring out what to make for lunch by foraging in the field, farm-based education at Green Gate gives children the opportunity to lead, fosters creativity and strengthens resilience. #AJA #FarmCamp #ChildrenFarming #NoFarmsNoFood #Organic #EachOneTeachOne #FarmBasedEducation #FBEN

Today we had a visit from Colby-Sawyer College freshmen looking to learn more about food value chains. We showed them @sweetbeetmarket, #sweetbeetfarm, and our commercial kitchen and talked about what we are doing to help strengthen key points within the local food system. It’s always fun to have visitors and show them what we are all about! 👏🏻🌀😎 Curious about collaborating with us for farm-based education programming? Send us a message! #farmbasededucation #farmtoschool #education #foodhub #foodsystems #valuechain

“He who opens a school door, closes a prison.” The other day I was talking to a student and he said “Without school I don’t know where I’d be but it wouldn’t be good.” I asked him to clarify and he said “I would be dead or locked up for sure” Education is transformative. It has a healing power that can heal us from darkness and fill us with light. I love this quote because I have seen it with my own eyes. I have seen real changes that come through a school filled with purpose and love. . . . . . . . . #makesdifference #schoolculture #farmschool #rootshigh #education #wordstoliveby #loveyourwork #teachersofinstagram #chartersrock #highschool #rootscharterhighschool #farmbasededucation #schoolculture #teachersofinstagram #roots243 #teachersofinstagram #educate #educatethem #EducateAndRegulate #farmbasededucation #EducateLives #educateyourselfs #educateandliberate #EducateOurChildren #EducateAndAdvocate #educatelight #highschool #urbaneducation #farmschool #highschool #urbaneducation #loveyourwork #teachersofinstagram #rootscharterhighschool #storyteller #greatness #learningrevolution #instagood

Do you see the light on those leaves? That, my friends, is the sun! We’ve been waiting quite awhile for some sun to dry out our fields. It looks like we can count on a good stretch of sunny weather to help us out.

This account is a work journal and I don’t usually share family pics. However, this morning I was watching my youngest, Gordo, draw and I started dreaming of what education will be when he is in High School. I dream of schools that foster positive community. I dream of schools that focus on character traits, such as empathy, as strongly as they focus on math. I dream of schools that are safe because of relationships and not because of armed guards. I dream of schools that train teachers to be trauma informed before the train anything else. I dream of schools that foster creativity stronger than conformity. I believe in teachers and I dream that when this little guy is educated in the public school system, his needs and learning will be placed before maintaining a standardized system. I dream that some day we will completely free the teachers to foster learning. . . . . . . . . #makesdifference #schoolculture #farmschool #rootshigh #education #wordstoliveby #loveyourwork #teachersofinstagram #chartersrock #highschool #rootscharterhighschool #farmbasededucation #schoolculture #teachersofinstagram #roots243 #teachersofinstagram #educate #educatethem #EducateAndRegulate #farmbasededucation #EducateLives #educateyourselfs #educateandliberate #EducateOurChildren #EducateAndAdvocate #educatelight #highschool #urbaneducation #farmschool #highschool #urbaneducation #loveyourwork #teachersofinstagram #rootscharterhighschool #storyteller #greatness #learningrevolution

In Textiles Class this week our 6th grade worked on “needle felting.” They carded, washed and dyed raw fleece from their sheep to create fiber art! #manhattancountryschoolfarm #manhattancountryschool #mcsfarm #farmbasededucation #experientialeducation #progressiveeducation #progressiveeducationnetwork #farmbasededucationnetwork #fiberart #kidswhofarm #farmfriday

Before school started we spray painted and posted “243” all over the school. The number 243 is very important here at @rootshighcharter There is literally no where in the building that you can’t see the number. We have bracelets, shirts and other reminders everywhere. We got the number from 143. The number 143 means “I love you”. The number 243 means “We love you” It takes 2 letters to say we, It takes 4 letters to say love and it takes 3 letters to say you. Many of us just need a constant reminder that we are loved. . . . . . . #remember243 #highschool #education #bekind #rootscharterhighschool #makesdifference #schoolculture #farmschool #rootshigh #education #wordstoliveby #loveyourwork #teachersofinstagram #chartersrock #highschool #rootscharterhighschool #farmbasededucation #schoolculture #teachersofinstagram #roots243 #teachersofinstagram #educate #educatethem #EducateAndRegulate #farmbasededucation #EducateLives #educateyourselfs #educateandliberate #EducateOurChildren #EducateAndAdvocate #educatelight #highschool #urbaneducation #farmschool #highschool #urbaneducation #loveyourwork #teachersofinstagram #rootscharterhighschool #storyteller #greatness #ksl #instagood
