Teaching About the Garden At Riverside School Event

Saturday, May 17 is the day of the third annual Healthy Children Healthy Planet event at the Riverside School garden. The day celebrates school gardening and is designed to include families and the community.

This garden is all about teaching in authentic settings and using the outdoors to make curricula come alive. Teachers have found creative ways of using the space now that it exists. Children are free to pick, explore, and run around as long as they keep their feet out of beds.

The event is held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include garden activities, yoga in the garden, arts and crafts, a plant sale, food, music, sustainability exhibits, and rescue vehicles. The suggested donation is $5 and proceeds benefit Riverside School garden programs.
