This Sunday at The Green Tent, the Garden School Foundation will be making seed bombs — the perfect way to spread the love this fall! Bring the kiddos by to cultivate a new generation of guerrilla gardeners and teach the little ones that you can garden anywhere!

The Garden School Foundation stands as the premier model of garden-based education in Los Angeles. After 7 years at the 24th Street Elementary School in West Adams, they’ve developed not only a thriving, organized, beautiful, and sustainable garden classroom but a comprehensive curriculum that speaks to the particular needs of schools in under-served communities. Since 2003, they’ve been turning asphalt into ecosystems, working to create a healthy, educated and aware future generation that care for their bodies and for the earth. GSF’s Seed To Table (S2T) program, which is comprised of K-5 year-round curriculum, operates in six Title I elementary schools and their new Greenhouse Program teaches vocation-based curriculum to students with developmental disabilities at Widney Career and Transition Center. 

GSF holds Community Garden Days every month at their various sites, providing a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together and volunteer in one of their school gardens. We have two upcoming Community Garden Days.The last one for October will be located at 24th Street Elementary School Saturday, October 29th from 10 am - 1 pm. Please visit their website if you are interested in participating on either day or at any future Community Garden Day. You will also find details for our upcoming Virtual Harvest Moon Annual Giving Campaign, Greenhouse Seedling CSA Program, and news on their amazing expansion into 10 new schools providing teacher training workshops! Check out their website for more exciting things happening at The Garden School Foundation.
