We need your help to transform an empty courtyard on the Grant elementary campus into the new learning garden. Join us on Sunday April 21st from 10am - 2pm on the Grant school campus to help with his exciting project.
This will be an outdoor, living classroom for all grade levels (K-6) to study science, art and environmental education. It will contain diverse learning hubs and opportunities for hands-on engagement, plus a semi-circle of seating for lessons and presentations. Classes will focus on inquiry-based activities which incorporate weather instruments, solar energy, compost and biomass, plants and studies of soil erosion, ecosystems and climate change. We've received a grant to make this possible - now we need your participation!
We look forward to seeing you at this groundbreaking celebration. Please bring your own clippers and garden gloves. Families welcome, free refreshments!
