The Farmer’s Market

The educators came up with the idea to host The Highlander School Farmer’s Market as an opportunity for children to practice different ways to exchange goods and share our abundance of resources with our community. We also encouraged parents to bring water to exchange for our children’s creations so that we could provide hydration for the unhoused members of our community.

Throughout this week, the children planned for The Highlander School Farmer’s Market as part of the continuation of our Mother Earth Camp. The Multi-Age children started their week by crafting invitations to announce the market on Friday.

The Multi-Age children gathered fresh cucumber and mint from the garden. The children peeled the cucumber, blending peelings with mint & salt to create Cucumber Mint Bath Salt.

The Toddler Two children gathered and washed fresh rosemary from the garden. The leaves of the rosemary plant were combined with oil and infused overnight. The next day, Earth-Centered Practitioner Ms. Andrea helped the children combine the mixture with beeswax and shea butter to create Rosemary Salve.

The Highlander School Farmer’s Market featured cucumber mint bath salt, coconut hand cream, lavender salve, rosemary salve, blueberry and mint mocktails, butterfly pea lemonade mocktails, butterfly pea tea, and blueberry muffins with ingredients harvested from our land and prepared by the children throughout the week.

The Farmer’s Market is an example of one of the many reimagined ways we are learning to be in community with each other and recognize our undeniable interdependence upon this Earth.
