The Garden Foundation "Workdays Program"
Sunday Assembly L.A. joins The Garden Foundation "Workdays Program," again this month....and every month!
The Garden School Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides interactive garden-based education to under-served children across Los Angeles in their beautiful living classrooms. Since 2003, they've been turning asphalt into ecosystems, working to create a healthy, educated and aware future generation of children that care for their bodies and for the earth. Currently they're working at 5 Title1 schools and serving over 2,500 children with their Seed-to-Table programming, which includes the implementation of their patented Seed-to-Table curriculum, garden management, community outreach, garden events and after-school activities.
We will be joining GSF for their "Workdays" program. "Workdays" are a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some fun in the sun, explore their gorgeous landmark 24th Street school garden and to learn more about food, from seed to table.
From 9-11:30 we work on their garden projects, which include: weeding, planting, building beds, harvesting and more. At around 11:30pm, we break for lunch, which includes healthy snacks as well as (amazing) tamales made by 24th Street mom, Amabelia. After lunch we have a workshop by one of the Garden Foundation community partners; this month, the folks from LA Kitchen are coming in to give us a cooking demo integrating veggies from the garden.
What to bring: Water, snacks, closed-toed shoes, clothes you don't mind getting dirty, sun protection
NOTE: This is a wonderful "kid friendly" event you don't want to miss!
Please join Sunday Assembly L.A. in working with a remarkable organization in developing food wisdom and whole food appreciation in our little ones!
See you then!
