Kids love to dig in the dirt, no doubt about it. And it's a great way for them to learn! So why not consider an edible school garden for your child's school? Gardens can be integrated into the curriculum school-wide, or they can be tended to by garden clubs. Either way, kids learn, have fun and perhaps they try a new veggie or fruit in the process!
On Thursday, Oct. 6, parents, teachers and school administrators are invited to a free workshop, In the Dirt: School Gardens, all about how to start and maintain edible school gardens, and how gardening clubs and school gardens can be used to encourage kids to grow, learn about and eat healthy foods! Hear from peole involved with the Brier Creek Elementary and Moore Square Middle School gardens, as well as about community organizations and resources available to help school gardeners.
The workshop is free, but pre-registration is required to ensure enough space and materials for all. Register online today!
