Some of my students from previous classes I've taught at UVM worked together for a sustainability education course and created a beautiful video for us. Hopefully it helps put our pedagogy in context and make some sense out of the apparent wildness of the program! In the future I hope to include more voices - the kids, the parents, the other staff, volunteers, and others involved in the program. I hope you enjoy!

Raft building

Sorry for the long delay in posting. I haven't brought my camera in a while and so took a break from posting. Last week on Wednesday we took advantage of the warm weather to spend some time out at the lake. Beaven and Olin had been talking about building a raft so a few of us headed to Mink Bay and started construction on our driftwood raft. It's not yet done, but it floats and holds about 4 kids right now. It was a great project where we learned some new knots for lashing logs together while feeling chill of the water against our feet.

We've also been bringing instruments more and more this session. The kids have loved messing around with the guitar and mandolin. Her Fisher's looking like Sid Vicious rocking out on the guitar. Sam tuned the guitar to open tuning so anything they play sounds like gold.
