intelligent contemplation of nature


...For the physical life it is necessary to have the child exposed to the vivifying forces of nature, it is also necessary for his physical life to place the soul of the child in contact with creation, in order that he may lay up for himself treasure from the directly educating forces of living nature. The method for arriving at this end is to set the child at agricultural labor, guiding her to the cultivation of plants and animals, and so to the intelligent contemplation of nature.

-Maria Montessori

Thank you to the Bishas (Lucy) and Thelins (Avidel), two new toddler families, that have agreed to contribute one weekend hour each month to tend to our chickens!

We need just two more families to make a commitment in order to move forward with the chicken plan. Who is in?
