School gardening in winter?  

You betchya!  The Lettuce Learn team is in full force this winter thanks to Parkway's Suncatcher.  We are also offering a HCLF school garden grant (Due Jan 29) and a Garden Math & Literacy workshop (Feb 20th).  Of course we're busy raising funds to make sure we can fully support school gardens throughout 2016.  If you believe in the benefits of gardening with children, there are many ways to give (Round up at Bare Essentials, Seed Money, Investment).  Please consider gifting a school garden this holiday season and rest assured knowing your gift will keep growing all year through.
Thank you for believing in gardens as outdoor classrooms,
