Garden School Foundation, February 7

This Sunday at The Green Tent, the Garden School Foundation will be making seed bombs — the perfect way to spread the love for Valentine’s Day! Bring the kiddos by to cultivate a new generation of guerrilla gardeners and teach the little ones that you can garden anywhere!

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. GSF’s Seed To Table (S2T) program, which is comprised of K-5 year round curriculum, operates in six Title I elementary schools (schools where a majority of families live below the poverty line) and their new Greenhouse Program teaches vocation-based curriculum to students with developmentally disabilities at Widney Career and Transition Center. 

GSF holds Community Garden Days every month, providing a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together and volunteer in one of their school gardens. Please visit their website if you are interested in participating in a Community Garden Day or if you would be interested in learning about City Seedlings, a week-long summer camp that has two sessions this summer: June 20-24 and June 27-July 1.
