Planting a summer garden is simple! Just use this SLO County Summer Planting Guide we made so your plants can thrive.
We are bringing our garden education program online. Each week, there will be new science curriculum video lessons that share what we do with the schools and that you can do with your kids back home. We will also have seasonal activities and cooking lessons with a recipe!
We've put together the following resources to help you create a thriving garden. Every lesson is packed with valuable information and best practices for managing students in the unconventional space of a garden, as well as linking you to other area service providers that can support school garden education. The information you'll find includes General Garden Resources, Critters & Pollination, Perennials & People, Soil to Seed, Appropriate Technology, Weather & Water Use, Slow It, Spread It, Sink It, Pollution & Our Waste, and Garden Eats & Healthy Bodies.
Learning, growing, and eating in the garden unlocks the inherent genius in everyone. Genius isn't just about book smarts, it's about reconnecting with our health, our family, our community, and the Earth. Drawing together Food Forests, Zero Waste, and Water Wise concepts, the program currently works at schools in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties to measurably improve student health, academics and well-being. Will you help us change lives?
