Developing Virtue Girls School was so lucky to have spend Earth Day with special guests from ServiceSpace. The morning started with music from Nimo and Fab from an organization called ServiceSpace, singing along to “Planting Seeds” a favorite among the majority of our school.
Some lyrics from this beloved song includes:
Whatever grows will grow
Whatever dies will die
Whatever works will work
Whatever flies will fly
Whatever fails will fail
What’s meant to soar will soar
We are planting seeds, nothing more
For lunch, both the students and guests had a picnic on the lawn.
Then Nimo and friends hosted an Awakin Circle, sharing their life experiences with the 10th-12th graders.
Afterward, Cathy Monroe came to speak about her conservation efforts in the community and the importance of planting certain flowers to maintain the normal level of bee populations.
Lastly the students hosted an outdoor Earth Day Fair to end the day, complete with vegan hot dogs and recycled can-art stands.
