A few days after our #PullYourWeeds® Assembly at the Riverview School in Denville, NJ, their school's Librarian, Rachel Jamison hosted a Gratitude Garden Book Walk for the families of the students. This remarkable experience took place in the school's garden (the students planted all the tulips) and was an opportunity to highlight all the SEL seeds sprouting at their school. The walk opened up with the beautiful mural Ms. Jamison and the students created and when you turned the corner, the rainbow of tulips were a beautiful host to the pages of You Are a Gardener® lining the path.
As you literally walked through our book, the path opened up to a Garden of 'Gardening Tool Stations' for the students and families. From fox origami to You Are a Gardener activity sheets, our signature flower fortune tellers to #PullYourWeeds® coloring sheets, there was a 'gardening tool' for gardeners of all ages to enjoy!
Ms. Jamison even created a gigantic You Are a Gardener® Certificate of Accomplishment for all the students to sign. Again this is such a beautiful example of how connected the Riverview community is. To see children, families and teachers all coming together with our book and programs as the highlight was truly a dream come true...it felt like 'walking on sunshine'. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this event. We are extremely grateful to have been a part of your celebration.
