Carlsbad Community Gardens Collaborative: Garden Training Workshop Print

 

Come join the Carlsbad Community Gardens Collaborative this Saturday, September 21 from 8am to 1pm for a Garden Training Workshop!  
We're fortunate to have as a presenter, Mary Anne Loucas, who is a nationally recognized garden expert.  She has been the National Garden Club and California Garden Club President. This is sponsored by a U.S. Agriculture grant and supports our local efforts to bring about more community, school and residential gardens.   Each participant needs to bring a brown bag lunch for a lunch-hour networking opportunity.  Each participant will receive a special garden tote-bagfilled with resources to share.


This is a free workshop...but we are accepting a five dollar donation for the Carlsbad Community Gardens Collaborative 501(c)3 nonprofit outreach efforts.


Training Leaders to Use Garden-based Education
Sponsored by Kids Growing Strong.
Funded by a grant from the US Dept. of Agriculture
through the California Dept. of Food & Agriculture
Kids Growing StrongTM has been awarded a grant from the California Department of Food & Agriculture and the US Department of Agriculture to develop a 'Train-the-Trainer' program to promote California-grown fruit and vegetables.
What does this mean?
It means that  Kids Growing StrongTM will prepare local leaders to enrich the lives of families in their own communities by sharing the joy that can be found in growing and eating fresh California produce. In communities statewide, Leader trainees will learn how to reach out to families and demonstrate how CA-grown produce can reconnect people with the importance of where/how the food they eat is grown, improve health and enrich experiences at the family dining table and during family time.
And it's FREE!
Kids Growing StrongTM will provide the core leadership with a variety of media-rich educational materials, displays, continuing education opportunities and guidance for structured "hands-on" workshops to help people grow, prepare and taste produce in season.
These trainers will likewise be able to “pass it forward” and train other members of their communities to do the same.
