Learn about school gardens
April 9, 2014
On Thursday, April 17, at 6 p.m., Ian Thompson, Director of Lower Columbia School Gardens, will share successes, challenges and opportunities of developing and sustaining school gardens, getting kids outside digging in the mud, noticing, observing and learning about critters in the compost, pollinators at the flowers and whatever other natural life presents itself.
Come hear how participating in planning, planting, weeding, watering, composting, harvesting, selling, cooking and eating actual vegetables (and fruit) impacts students and volunteers and fosters connection with nature.
This event will be held at the Lower Columbia College Physical Science Building Room 102, located next to the LCC 15th Ave parking lot in Longview.
