Picnic time in music today! πŸ‰πŸŠπŸ‡πŸŽβ˜‰ #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #musicincursion

We’ve got an exciting project starting this week on the CFM Instagram page - CFM vendors will be taking over our page, Guest Instagramming. During each vendor’s week, they will be giving us a behind the scenes look of what and why they do what they do. πŸ‘€ We’re super excited to see what our favorite farmers and artisans have to share!

Our first Guest Instagrammers are Erica and Brandt Parker, with the @thesagegardencomo. Starting in 2017 Brandt and Erica Parker, along with their daughter Amelia, took the first steps in pursuing their dream of having a market garden. This dream, The Sage Garden, is now alive and flourishing on 3 acres in Hallsville. We can’t wait to see all they have to share! (Pictured are the Parker’s visiting Rose Creek Farm, in Tennessee.) β€’ β€’ β€’

More gorgeous literary inspiration for our kinder music incursions this term. #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #elizabethhoney #australianauthors

A delivery of rainbows in my letterbox today. More super-soft and floaty scarves to add to my early years basket. Perfect for storytelling, imaginative play and creative movement. 🎢🌈🌿 #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #musicandmovement

If I give instruction or direction in a session, it's usually sung rather than spoken. Children's brains are pre-wired to respond differently to, and pay closer attention to, the melodic inflections of singing. Here, everyone - children and educators included - sang "bye bye scarves" as we all helped pack away. It creates a positive, personal connection between child and instrument, and encourages respect and care of the music equipment. πŸŽΆπŸŒŸπŸ–‘ #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #musicincursion #childrenarecapable

New uniform, new kinder, new songs 🎢🌿#thesagegardenmusic #thesagegarden #musicincursion #teachingchildrentogrow

I wrote a little piece for my pals @theplanthunter about how my fight with my rat almost made me give up on gardening.

School Holiday Activity 🌱
Tomorrow I am a part of a free (πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€‘) children’s event at my favourite community garden in Manningham.
We will be planting out the garden beds, planting edible seeds to take home and building bug hotels. πŸ¨πŸ¦—πŸœπŸž
Bookings through the link in my profile.
See you there πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎβœŒπŸΌ

I really love building kinder gardens πŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸ’•πŸŒΏπŸŒ±
The photos here are from one of my favourite sections. The educators told us the children love to use this space as a walking track. We built a raised garden bed and planted hardy herbs that will grow tall enough to allow for secret children’s business.
Thank you to the best crew @snoopmitchell @curt_island @theoceanparty πŸ’•

The is me saying a massive thank you to @leonard.st for making The Sage Garden uniforms. I really wanted beautiful clothes that suited teaching young children but what I really wanted was the clothes my educators and I wear to be ethically made. I wanted to know the maker. Amanda the designer @leonard.st is connected to her designs from beginning to end and some how I have managed to weasel my way in and share in a little part of that magic. I am so fortunate that Amanda has been so generous, she even let me choose β€œwhatever designs I liked” from her lines. It was Christmas. I may have got over excited. It may be hard to garden in a jumpsuit but I regret nothing. Amanda πŸ™ŒπŸ½
Ps I haven been wearing @leonard.st clothing, aside from my uniforms, for a very long time. One dress I have worn for 7 summers. Slow, ethical fashion is Queen. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Even the most boisterous of children can find their inner zen. Scarves, storytelling and a quiet-time song create a pressure-free invitation for children to rest and reflect. #thesagegarden #thesagegardenmusic #teachingchildrentogrow #musicincursion #thewholechild #holisticeducation
