School Garden Day 2016 will be on May 20 – just around the corner! As in previous years, the event is held by YOU in your school garden, and when you REGISTER your school and SHARE photos, we ALL get the benefit of knowing we’re not the only ones out there, loving the magic of school gardens, and building towards collective impact!
I recently attended a ministry of Education consultation, with Education Alliance for a Sustainable Ontario. We praised the ministry for their progressive new Policy Framework around Experiential Learning. This is a great frame for our work in the food- and environmental-literacy movement, such as that taking place in school gardens. (You can read my submission to the Ministry about our organization here.)
I’ll be back to you all about this year’s prizes and incentives to register. Meantime, enjoy the sunny spring-like weather we’re having in most of the province!
