Reusable Lunch Bags, Gardening and Apple Muffins!
Today we talked about how we can reduce our plastic waste. Some kids have lunchboxes that require no plastic wrap but these options can be costly so we decided to make our own. We found a pattern for a fabric lunch bag that wasn't too tricky and started turning our recycled fabric into lunch bags. We plan to give each child one and eventually make enough to sell on our online store (coming soon!)
The outside gang continued weeding the food forest and mulching the natives. We decided to leave the flowering weeds as this is good for our bees and remove them after they have finished flowering.
A small group made wholewheat apple muffins to give to Bill Hammond landscaping who kindly donated a trailer load of much to Earth School.
