Share ideas for Rainier Beach Learning Garden on April 20

Interested in growing food and helping kids understand where their food comes from?  Come share your ideas for our new community learning garden in Rainier Beach!

The Rainier Beach Learning Garden Steering Committee will host the second of 3 meetings to design the expanded garden.   We will compare several designs and share ideas for making the garden an inviting and educational space for friends and neighbors of all ages.  

When:   Tuesday, April 20, 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Where:  South Lake High School

Dinner and childcare will be provided.  Translation services available upon request.   

The Rainier Beach Learning Garden is a partnership between Seattle Tilth, Seattle Parks, South Shore PTSA, South Shore PreK-8, Rainier Beach Community Center, New School Foundation and Kids Co.   It is located behind South Shore School next to the tennis courts and gives kids and adults a place to grow food while learning about healthy eating and environmental stewardship.   

Last August, a local landscape firm, In Harmony Sustainable Landscapes, helped 50 volunteers build 6 raised beds to start the garden.  Since then, Seattle Tilth has been teaching kids and adults to love bugs, grow food and explore the natural world through hands-on science.   We recently received a matching grant from Department of Neighborhoods to expand the garden, teach the latest techniques in urban gardening and help more people grow their own food.
