Summer Garden Schedule and Adopt-a-Garden

We just finished our last week of Spring Programs in School Gardens, which means that Summer Garden programs will be starting soon. Please come visit a school garden near you this summer – they are all open to the community on a weekly basis.

We are still in need of families to adopt gardens for a week this summer. Adopting a garden means that you help take care of it for a week – watering every few days (depending on temperatures), and harvesting what is ripe and ready to be picked. Gardening expertise or experience is not necessary! Once you have signed up we will review watering and harvesting with you before your scheduled week arrives.

There are so many different opportunities to volunteer or participate this summer – see the schedule above and contact info@LCschoolgardens.org if you need more information. All garden activities and programs are FREE.

 

Sept. Healthy Child event featured school gardens

Kids teamed up with a local restaurant to provide the meal; heath agencies dished on school gardens, healthy eating at school and at home. If you weren’t able to attend the Healthy Child Growing Mind workshop at Northlake in September, check out the Daily News article with some great photos and back story on Lower Columbia School Gardens.  http://tdn.com/lifestyles/article_77dc1e02-ec99-11e0-8847-001cc4c002e0.html
