School Gardens and Save Our Watershed, July 5

We're celebrating our wonderful school gardens this week at the Green Tent. Find out how our local schools are using them to meet curriculum guidelines with programs like Mark Twain Middle School's "Seeds to Plate." Learn about their educational, social, emotional and health benefits. 

Green Committee co-chair Jeanne Kuntz will be on hand to share her fun experiences as a Walgrove School garden volunteer and answer your questions. Jeanne's bringing her vegetable stamps so kids (and adults) can make their own veggie cards. She may even challenge folks to take the Veggie Pledge. 

The MVCC Green Committee will soon launch a new blog - MarVistaSaveOurWatershed - to celebrate the shift within our community from thirsty lawns to climate appropriate, watershed wise landscapes. 

Are you a part of the change? Stop by the Green Tent and tell us about your garden. Are you wondering what "climate appropriate, watershed wise landscape" means? We'll have some answers this week at the Green Tent.
