A Garden in Every School Symposium 2017

Presented by Soil Born Farms Urban Agriculture & Education Project

Soil Born Farms has planned an inspiring weekend for you. Network with like-minded teachers, parents, garden designers, community leaders, school garden coordinators, and others involved with helping kids make the connection between food, health, and the environment. By encouraging and supporting a garden in every school, you can create opportunities for local children to discover fresh food, connect to a living environment while applying academic standards, to develop social and emotional skills, and consider future career options.

The intention is to advance Delaine Eastin’s A Garden in Every School initiative by advocating for a collaborative regional commitment to accomplish the goal of a garden in every school by 2020 for the children of America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital. There will be workshops, success stories, best practices, panel discussions, and delicious food.
