We started the day of by practicing mindfulness with Lee Jacobs. He led us through a meditation that focused on thinkinh good things about ourselves and others. Next we went and worked in the garden. Students were using our new i-pad to photograph eachother working. See a few example below:
We made a healthy and simple lunch:
a dozen eggs
olive oil – about a tablespoon
mayonaise- 6 heaping table spoons
salt and pepper to taste
Quinoa with collards and spices from our garden.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Commissioner Francis Suarez for his generous donation to Nature Links. We also would like to acknowledge an earlier contribution from County Commissioner Xavier Suarez. Without contributions like this Nature Links would not exist!
We have had three sections of our current session: We have been having a great time on Virginia Key – We have been covering the basics of video documentation, getting ready to create some works of art.
