This is a journal for the garden at Orlando Junior Academy, a Christian, Seventh-day Adventist school located in the neighborhood of College Park in Orlando Florida. This garden’s purpose is to extend the students’ curriculum beyond the classroom to the outdoors where the natural world becomes the textbook. This venue provides our students with an experience that is inspiring and challenging, one that requires critical thinking skills, discipline and physical engagement. In our garden we gain a greater appreciation for our food and enjoy the satisfaction of real work. This journal is a record of our activities there.
