Instead of a Final: Generational Indigenous Planting

Instead of taking a final, the Upper School Tipping Points class stepped outside of the classroom to plant a generational indigenous garden – different from a simply native garden in that it mimics the planting practices of indigenous people, approaching the earth with care and respect.
They planted white sage, sticky monkey flower and yarrow, using a “no till” method that minimally disrupts the soil and keeps microorganisms intact. They also planted "three sisters" of vegetables that grow well together and form a natural pesticide: beans, squash, and corn. Thank you for beautifying our campus and being kind to the earth at the same time!
