The Seattle Tilth is such a cool organization. They inspire and educate people to safeguard our natural resources while building an equitable and sustainable local food system. They have been providing hands-on education in organic agriculture for 36 years. They believe that all people deserve access to healthy, nutritious food and that changing the way in which we grow, cook and eat food has the potential to transform people’s lives as well as the communities in which we live. Check out what classes and events they have coming up:
Announcing Enhanced Garden Educator Workshops
The Seattle Tilth is partnering with the University of Washington’s College of Education to include a new component to their Garden Educator Workshops this fall. Join them to learn about incorporating Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core requirements in your garden education lessons and learn about useful resources and teaching techniques. They have an upcoming workshop on November 22. Or ignite your children’s passion for the natural world with hands-on learning in their school garden and farm tours.
Seattle Tilth Garden Drive
This fall, go beyond the old school canned food drive and join their Just Garden program’s Garden Drive! Invite members of your congregation, school or workplace to support food garden construction for families and communities facing hunger in King County.
Fall is a great time to gather materials and learn how to create your own compost — join our final composting class for the year and take part in building a hot compost pile.
Composting 101 Sat. Nov. 1, 10 a.m.-noon
Garden Educator Training
Teachers and parents: bring garden education to schools, classrooms, youth programs, child care programs and community centers.
Schoolyards & Sustainability Sat, Nov. 22 10 a.m.-noon
Buy Apples to Fund Farm Education
This fall, eating an apple a day comes with a bigger benefit than keeping the doctor away! If you shop at PCC, be sure to pick up specially marked Farm to School bags of Fuji apples. Proceeds support hands-on educational field trips for K-12 students to Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands and Garden Educator Workshops that show teachers how to create garden classrooms.
