A few updates for you to start the year:
- The Grants page has been updated. There are some great funding opportunities either available now or opening soon. Please contact me if you would like any help with these.
- The 2019-20 Landed Learning program is ready for launch! All elementary schools are being offered a Garden-based Learning Resource Package to support them with using school gardens to provide hands-on, cross-curricular learning. There is no cost to schools, and activities can be tailored to suit specific interests and needs.
- We have had a fantastic response to our call-out for volunteers for the LL program taking place at Westview Elementary. On August 27, 12 volunteers got together with program staff, teachers and a local farmer to enjoy lunch in the school garden and get to know each other. It’s a great group and we’re really excited to be working with them! If you are interested in participating, we have room for 1 or 2 more…please contact Vanessa Sparrow at: firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
