Stratford Ecological Center

I snapped this on my cell as I was dropping off the girls for science week at Stratford Ecological Center. They run tons of homeschool alternative schooling programs and we love hanging out at their farm.

This week's program is called, "Sunship Earth" which was created by the Institute for Earth Education in the 1970's.  It is an amazing program and the girls learned enough today to make it worth our while....and they have 4 days to go.  Suffice it to say, they are teaching me things!

My favorite part of the program (aside from the fact that they are outside all day doing hands-on learning) is the "garbage-free lunch" instructions.  Yes, parents were given specific instructions on healthy lunch choices which include good nutrition and homemade food -- no pre-packaged items!

I have to say, it made my organic heart smile.
