A Garden in Every School Symposium
February 25, 2017 @ 9:00 am - February 26, 2017 @ 12:30 pm
Network with like-minded teachers, parents, garden designers, community leaders, school garden coordinators, and others involved with helping kids make the connection between food, health and the environment. By encouraging and supporting a garden in every school, we create opportunities for our children to discover fresh food, connect to a living environment while applying academic standards, to develop social and emotional skills and consider future career options. Gardens offer beautiful, dynamic settings to integrate every discipline, including science, math, reading, art, environmental studies, nutrition and health. Help us move Delaine Eastin’s A Garden in Every School initiative forward in America’s Farm to Fork Capital with a collaborative regional commitment to accomplish the goal of a garden in every school by 2020!.
