Students designed acorn art to be discovered at our Harvest Moon Festival

Students took a day to make acorn art (a variation on “painted rocks” sometimes hidden around neighborhoods and festivals). Each student marked an acorn with a meaningful symbol. Some symbols represented were peace signs, bird, eyes, flower, spirals, yin and yang, and the sun. What a hopeful group of future leaders! The acorns were then decorated to stand out, they will be scattered around our Harvest Moon Festival this weekend for our families to discover and enjoy.

This week, students began their journey into farming by creating covers for their field notebooks using pokeweed berries foraged from TNSM’s campus. The 4-6th graders established a table of contents, which outlines the permaculture principles students will be considering each week as they design our farm together.
