Community gardens and green spaces are fast becoming part of a shared economy. They make it possible for many people to enjoy a resource that they couldn't afford or have access to on their own. Benefits from community gardens and green spaces extend to the entire community and even to society as a whole.
The benefits of beautifying cities, providing fresh produce and healthier lifestyles, and stronger communities will be explored. Students will also engage in classroom discussion to discover natural farming practices, the need to localize our food system, and engage in garden and green space planning.
Students will engage in hands-on-activities by directly contributing to a community-based garden project or green space project. Dress appropriately for weather. Call (724) 287-8711, ext. 8172 to register. Please contact Dina with any questions.
