Earth Day!

“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.”
-Rabindranath Tagore

Villa di Maria’s annual Earth Day festivities were a huge hit with our Children’s Houses. April 22 was a fabulous morning to be outside in the dirt – and this day was just the beginning! These plants and flowers will be tended and enjoyed through the rest of the school year and into the summer.

Here’s hoping we all get the chance to get dirty and plant with our children!
