Terra and Birke–June 13, 2013

Because of the rain, we met in the library’s community room and met a turtle named Terra that Anna found on Redberry Farm where she works. She planned on releasing her the next day. The kids liked touching her shell and she looked around at everyone.

Next we watched a Ted Talk by Birke Baehr called What’s Wrong with Our Food about our food system and the importance of organic farming.

Then using colored pencils, everyone finished up their plant drawings and portraits of Terra. Aidric said “the turtle is so small and the world is so big.”
