Panel Discussion: Engaging Students and Community in the School Garden - Thursday, March 5th
Learn best practices for engaging community and developing learning opportunities for students in the school gardens from on-the-ground experts in the DUG and Slow Food Denver networks.
Since 2004, Denver Urban Gardens and the Colorado School of Public Health have worked together, through the Gardens for Growing Healthy Communities (GGHC) community-based research initiative, to explore how gardens, as neighborhood places, support healthy living. In short, the results of this research partnership have shown what community gardeners have known all along- that community gardens are good for neighborhoods!
