The Seeds to Plate school garden program is our Green Tent this Sunday. Children will be able to make Mother's Day bouquets with flowers from the Mark Twain garden. They'll also be giving away seedlings of veggies and ornamentals.
Come learn learn about the Seeds to Plate Program -- including how they connect the Garden to the academic curriculum during school time every week. You'll have an opportunity to sign up for upcoming events in the garden as well as find out how to become a volunteer with the Program.
In 2013, the Seeds to Plate program became the first school to sell its produce at their local farmers' market, providing additional learning opportunities to students in entrepreneurship.
The Seeds to Plate Program aims to create and maintain a school garden that is integrated into the academic environment, promote a healthy food culture, nurture physical and mental well-being and provide hands-on gardening and eating experiences for students, families and staff to foster mutual respect, appreciation of diversity, community spirit and sustainability of the earth.
