A Garden in Every School Symposium: Sowing Opportunity, Harvesting Change
Saturday, March 14, 9 am-5 pm
We've planned an inspiring weekend for you! Come network with like-minded teachers, parents, garden designers, community leaders, school garden coordinators, and others involved in helping kids make the connection between food, health and the environment. This year we will aim to discover ways to increase equity and access through school gardens. Learn and discuss ways to grow culturally representative crops, prepare ethnic recipes using garden produce and design systems that use the naturally diverse and unique learning environment of a school garden. Workshops will include curriculum, garden design, cooking, planting plans, art ideas and garden sustainability. Support our mission to have a garden in every school while you attend workshops, participate in hands-on experiences, network, eat delicious food and connect with local organizations.
