Sade's Blog





Hi, my name is Sade. I am from Concrete Safaris. On Monday, April 7, 2014, a volunteer named Chloe helped us work on composting and learning a little bit more information about composting. We got to touch worms and looked at them really closely with magnifying glasses, and also we got to learn a little bit about earthworms' bodies. And, last but not least we got to play a game with pictures around our necks. And, that's why I love Concrete Safaris.








Note: Chloe from the Lower East Side Ecology Center and Concrete Safaris are working together to improve composting at Jefferson Houses.

My favorite things about CS are gardening, cooking, and fitness. I think everybody should go to this program because CS teaches us many things we will need to know when we grow up. I recommend this program to everybody that is interested in fitness, biking, cooking, and gardening. 

We learn why to work out, how to take out pests in your garden, and how to bike. These things will help me in the future because I might need to clean out my garden, ride my bike, and work out to be strong.

I like the garden program because we get to plant and measure the beds. On Wednesday, we measured the length and width of the bed and also to see how many plants could fit in it and if there is more room for other types of plants. It was fun because we never did this before and we also drew pictures to see what beds we measured. In the summer, I would like to grow carrots, tomatoes, peas, and onions because they are all good and healthy. I wrote this because I like the plant program and because I think I am the expert at planting.

At Concrete Safaris yesterday, we were doing fitness. The ten workouts we did were:

1. Karaoke

2. Sit-ups

3. Pushups

4. Burpies

5. High-knee

6. Butt kicks

7. Lunges

8. Side Shuffle

9. Iron Crosses

10. Duck walks

My favorite are duck walks, karaoke, and iron cross. We worked out our legs and core. The one I like the best is karaoke because it's easy and fun. 

Step 1: Put your feet apart.

Step 2: Cros your left foot behind your right foot.

Step 3. Step to the right with your right foot.

Step 4. Put your left foot in front of your right foot and step to the right again. 

That's how to do the karaoke.
