School Gardens, September 11

Our local school gardens...making a difference

This Sunday at The Green Tent, the Garden School Foundation and representatives  are making seed bombs with the kiddos, cultivating a new generation of guerrilla gardeners and teaching the little ones that you can garden anywhere!

Representative from the Walgrove and Grand View Elementary school garden programs will also be on hand. Our students grow and cook organic vegetables right from their own gardens, learning elementary level botany and horticulture in the process. 

  • Which plants like hot weather and which ones like cold weather?

  • Why does it makes sense for us to eat food that is in season where we live?  

  • What are the 5 basics stages in the life cycle of a plant?

  • What is the best way to avoid getting stung by a bee?  (HINT: Don't act like a bear!)

Learn the answers to these questions and more as you play the Mystery Box Game. Then take the "Veggie Pledge".

The Garden School Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides interactive garden-based education to under served-children across LA in their outdoor living classrooms. Since 2003, they’ve been turning asphalt into ecosystems, working to create a healthy, educated and aware future generation that care for their bodies and for the earth.

Currently, they serve over 2500 students and their families at six Title 1 elementary schools, bringing to life what's taught in the classroom and giving kids the tools they need to lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
