Harvest our organic rice

Last week at the Half Day School, the all students and teachers came together and harvested our organic rice crop.

Also, children had been learning about the rice plant and its growing cycle, the advantages of following a simple nutritious diet as well as working on art projects to gain a deeper appreciation for the beauty of the plant. Next year we are hoping for a better harvest.
