Dig In to Edible School Gardens on March 8

Wake County educators can sign up to take part in the Advocates for Health in Action Fifth Annual Dig In—Weaving Edible Landscapes—Community Gardens and Urban Ag—into the Fabric of Our Community—on Sat., March 8, at Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh.

Teachers and administrators will be able to dig in to edible gardening—a great way for students to connect with the outdoors, learn in a hands-on way and taste wonderful, healthy vegetables and fruit that they grow and nurture in school gardens.

Willow Springs Elementary teacher Megan Lewis is an expert on starting and maintaining edible gardens and how schools can put gardens to work. Lewis will present one session on all the considerations for starting an edible school garden, and a second session on garden lessons and activities that will help your school incorporate the edible garden into curriculum and increase its utilization for school-wide learning. In addition to the educational sessions, AHA will feature a number of fun, educational booths.
