Join Us Saturday, March 14 & Sunday, March 15
We've 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. We will nourish you during the symposium with delicious food prepared by Magpie Café, Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op and Chipotle. (Photo by Guy Galante)
