Earth Day is Coming: April 22nd!

 Get primed for Earth Day by starting it with Earth Day Week, April 17-22. For us here at UMA, we will be offering video demos of planning, prepping and installing an organic vegetable garden. Use these video demos as resources for how you can plant a garden at your school, neighborhood or at home. All you need is a small space, some good soil and seeds or starts.

We will also offer more resources and links to not only get you started but keep you motivated in working with God's creation!

Do you have resources to share for Earth Day week? Let us know so that we can share them here on the blog.

A Playground for the Whole Family!

Sarah Klahs, UMA student from Iowa City, IO, shares her "Montessori experience" at the City Museum in St. Louis, MO. It sounds and looks like a GREAT Montessori adventure destination for ADULTS! 

Sarah writes:

This wonderful place is a great venue for remembering what is was like to be a curious, energetic, fearless child.

It is a glorious construction, in the former International Shoe Building, taking up an entire city block, indoors and out. Founded by Artist Bob Cassilly and his former wife Gail, it is an industrial looking wonderland inviting the participant to climb, touch, feel and experience every surreal part contained within it.

We had a wonderful time here over Spring Break, but didn't leave unscathed;if you're headed there, bring a flash light, knee pads and some sturdy, comfortable shoes!

An Irish blessing for St. Patrick's Day

May there always be work for your hands to do. 
May your purse always hold a coin or two. 
May the sun always shine on your windowpane. 
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. 
May the hand of a friend always be near you. 
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you."

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
