Drew Gardeners during Earth Day, April 2017
Macho, the gardener’s grandson, in the garden. He was so happy that my class came to visit, that he offered to give us a tour!
During the tour of the garden every plant was just ‘a flower’ or just ‘grass’. He even stepped on some beds and told us to follow him, which lead to the gardener screaming.
The last straw for him was the story he created around the missing fish. Georgie had a tub of fish in the garden and when the kids asked what happened to the fish, he put his hand in the shape of a gun and said he killed them all. I thought that was a bit outrageous and consulted Georgie who told Macho to stop lying. Turns out the fish were in the apartment living a happy life!
Before we left I told Macho thank you and thought about the tour. It was the best tour ever and I am sure the Macho would agree.
