[NOTE: Change in venue to South Lake School!]
Interested in growing food and helping kids understand where their food comes from? Come share your ideas for our new community learning garden in Rainier Beach!
On Tuesday, April 20, the Rainier Beach Learning Garden Steering Committee will host the second of three meetings to design the expanded garden. The meeting will take place at South Lake School from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. We will compare several designs and share ideas for making the garden an inviting and educational space for friends and neighbors of all ages. Dinner and childcare will be provided.
The Rainier Beach Learning Garden is a partnership between Seattle Tilth, Seattle Parks, South Shore PTSA, South Shore PreK-8, Rainier Beach Community Center, New School Foundation and Kids Co. It is located behind South Shore School next to the tennis courts and gives kids and adults a place to grow food while learning about healthy eating and environmental stewardship.
Last August, a local landscape firm, In Harmony Sustainable Landscapes, helped 50 volunteers build 6 raised beds to start the garden. Since then, Seattle Tilth has been teaching kids and adults to love bugs, grow food and explore the natural world through hands-on science.
We recently received a matching grant from Department of Neighborhoods to expand the garden, teach the latest techniques in urban gardening and help more people grow their own food. Join us on Tuesday, April 20th to compare several designs and share ideas for making the garden an inviting and educational space for friends and neighbors of all ages. We’ll see you there!
