Readings and Tastings

IMG_5937IMG_5931IMG_5929IMG_5925IMG_5923IMG_5946IMG_5941IMG_5944For the DLC Days, the Jardin hosted to the Book Club which read excerpts from Lewis Carroll to Ray Bradbury to Shakespeare. Parched from the sun and the willow fluff blowing around, Speaking Near and Far folks had an aromatic herb syrup taste test for the participants and the audience. Trying to recognize the subtle perfumes of rosemary, thyme, lemon balm and mint tickling our tongues, was a great game for a sunny afternoon.

Bloomsday Reading and Planting

To celebrate our prize with the rest of the school, the Jardin decided to invite everyone to a reading and plant fest on a decidedly sunny interlude in an otherwise sad Saintes de Glaces period: Friday May 13. There were readings of Wordsworth’s I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud, Thoreau’s treatise on beans, Apoolinaire, Krishnamurti, Robert Browning, Marie Ursula Bethel and more by teachers, students and researchers. We got down and dirty getting the tomatoes planted as well.
