A Garden in Every School Symposium 2018

Presented by Soil Born Farms Urban Agriculture & Education Proj...

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. Gardens offer beautiful, dynamic settings to integrate every discipline, including science, math, reading, art, environmental studies, nutrition and health. By encouraging and supporting a garden in every school, we create opportunities for our children to discover fresh food, to make healthier food choices and to become better nourished.

If you agree that school garden projects nurture community spirit, common purpose and cultural appreciation by building bridges among students,school staff, families, local businesses and organizations; let’s work together to create a garden in every school in America’s Fam-to-Fork Capital.

Educators will discover new ways to empower future leaders who are deeply rooted in the natural world and equipped to become the innovative, environmental stewards of a more sustainable world. Ignite a commitment to outdoor education. You’ll receive tools, ideas, inquiry-based lessons and make valuable connections to inspire your efforts.
