Organic Gardening, Naples,Fl., Pelican Marsh School

 

On November 18,2011 Ian Orlikoff of Eco Logic Land Care was a guest speaker for Mr.Shore’s third and fourth graders at the Pelican Marsh school in Naples, Fl.

The topic was life in a healthy soil system. The students watched videos of micro organisms in healthy soil. They enjoyed looking through Eco Logic’s microscope to see firsthand how alive a drop of compost really is and what it can do for their organic school garden. Many good questions were asked by the students. Ian then toured the garden with school volunteer Kendra Hermans. She  has worked with Ian before  when he had consulted as well as donated labor and materials when the school garden first started.  The school garden has since expanded including a composting system, container gardens, and an edible hedge. What a great job they are doing at Pelican Marsh school educating children on the importance of growing and eating their own organic foods.
