Ethnogardening

The southwestern ethnogarden was still in relatively good shape at the start of this term. so I opted to start the class in the Haruki cemetery area and introduced the class to the plants in the cemetery before moving over to the ethnogarden to the east of the cemetery. I noted that the cemetery gets cleaned up only on the week of the vernal and autumnal equinoxes.

The class is large this term - 27 at the start. There were more hands than space in which to deploy those hands. There was a fair amount of standing around, but that was for a lack of tasks to be done and not idleness.
