Naia’s Garden at Earthaven Ecovillage
Courtney Brooke: It’s a beautiful Wednesday morning garden session over here at the Gateway neighborhood. That’s some little garden gnome over here…
Good morning yarrow! Good morning snapdragons! Good morning oregano!
Sam: Wow! Like a little special plant kind of in the mix you know what this plant is right here?
Sam: That’s a little carrot so we’re going to let it grow. Just it’s so small but you can start to see its little carrotness kind of poking out of the soil there….. yeah……so we’ll let it grow…….
Naia: It’s okay we can eat it when it grows…..
Courtney Brooke: What’s this, Naia?
Courtney Brooke: Kale, wow….and what’s this?
Naia: Uhhh, Chickweed!….
Courtney Brooke: Do you like eating chickweed?
Naia: Uh huh….
Courtney Brooke: Me too. should we eat some?
Sam: What’s what’s your idea about how to use the chickweed later today Naia?
Naia: Like put it in this smoothie……
Sam: Put in the smoothie for the kids play group today….
Courtney Brooke: Wow, that’s so special. Morning NikiAnne……
Courtney Brooke: What are you taking care of?
NikiAnne: Reclaiming the laundry line from the elderberries.
Courtney Brooke: Wow, look at those beautiful elderberries…..Yeah.
NikiAnne: They like the sun but so does my laundry and in this space I want the laundry to win.
Courtney Brooke: Fair enough fair enough. Good morning birds! Hearing those birds songs!!!!
NikiAnne: Hey bee! You’re up early…. so cold out for you.
NikiAnne: There’s a bee. Well i don’t even know where it went….
Courntey Brooke: oh honey bees…. honey bees….Naia, do you love honey bees? Do you love honey
Naia: Uh yeah!
Courtney Brooke: Yeah me too. Thank you to the bees!
Sam: Yeah, I kept bees for maybe ten years and the biggest and best honey I ever got was the summer that Naia was born. And then we still have that honey, so the the thought is like maybe every year of Naia’s life we can give her a dose of the honey so she can have the essence of the flowers that are blooming at the time of her birth.
Courtney Brooke: That is so special.
Naia: When I was a baby?
Courtney Brooke: Good morning Lena…
Lena: Good morning.
