2013 Open House Event

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Hi Teachers and Garden Coordinators,

Welcome back to school! I know the dust hasn’t settled yet, and things are busy, but we encourage you to consider holding an Open House event at your garden at the end of the month. An Open House lets the kids show off their work, and gets your school and community excited about what you’re accomplishing.
