Title or Role
School Garden Coordinator/Educator
Lakeshore Elementary School
I got involved with children and gardens several years ago when my son's teacher asked if someone could volunteer to take the kids out and do some gardening. It eventually morphed into an outdoor science/garden education program with two teachers. The children use the gardens to learn everything in science, from pollination to birdwatching to soil science, photosynthesis, habitats, seasons. They compare and contrast. They observe the little hummingbird who sits at the top of the tree come rain or shine. They have salad parties. And the teachers regard this program as the most valuable program in the school.

Hi Jean! Welcome to C&NN. Glad you found us. I know Lakeshore Elementary. (I'm over the bridge in Marin.) I'm a huge fan of (and past volunteer in) school gardens and it sounds like you're doing a fabulous job in yours. So great that you've jumped in with both feet to our discussions and groups. I look forward to learning a lot more about and from you and to your continuing to find this a rich source of sharing and resources. Cheers!
