School Garden Workshop at Olivewood Gardens September 23, 2013

Olivewood Gardens is a gem hidden in National City. Originally built in the late 1800s, the Victorian home is surrounded by vast organic gardens and demonstration gardens for hosting cooking classes, nutrition classes, and gardening workshops. I helped Diana Bergman, program director, lead a workshop called Starting and Sustaining Your School Garden. I taught sections on watering, weeds, critters and curriculum. And I learned so much from the other participants — dedicated parents from schools, Farm to School leadership teams, Natural Resource Conservation District employees, and others. What a wonderful group of people!  And Olivewood is a true paradise. Here’s a link to their website.
