DC School Garden Tour
We hope you will join us for a beautiful day of school gardens and biking while helping out a local school garden in a tangible way!
OSSE’s School Garden Program, BicycleSPACE, and Slow Food DC will co-sponsor a bike tour around DC to visit some of our many school gardens. This is a great opportunity to learn about some of the wonderful school garden programs in the city and help make a big difference for some lucky kids.
We will start the day off right with a tasty breakfast snack and we will continue to eat our way through the school gardens tasting what’s growing as we explore what’s growing this spring. Additionally, we will hear from each school about a project they need to accomplish in order to make their garden an even better learning environment.
As the tour goes on, we would like you to keep in mind which school inspires you the most, or looks to have the most potential. At the last school, over a delicious free lunch, we will request donations and then vote on which school's project will receive all of what has been collected. You will decide which school will benefit!
Slow Food DC is going to have heirloom chili pepper seeds w/ growing instructions and a recipe for school garden tour attendees!
