Green Schoolyard Conference and Garden for the Environment Anniversary THIS WEEK!

Two great events happening this week!  

San Francisco Green Schoolyard Alliance
2010 Growing Greener School Grounds Conference
Sept. 24th and 25th

"The 2010 conference will feature hands-on workshops where you can learn how to use the sun as a teaching resource, understand the basics of organic gardening, build your own planting beds, create colorful mosaics, install irrigation, and more. In addition, many workshops will cover how to connect the outdoor classroom to the education content standards at all grade levels."

Garden for the Environment
20th Anniversary Celebration
Sept. 25th, 10am-5pm 

(I'll be there from 12-3 as a proud GCETP graduate, with an info and jam table for PttP and the Free Farm, and I'll be there from 3-5pm for happy hour if you just want to hang out!)

"Garden for the Environment (GFE) opened in the summer of 1990 on a centrally located one-half acre parcel owned by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. From its inception, the GFE has been a public-private partnership responsive to the changing needs of San Francisco’s landscape.

To celebrate the many accomplishments, and anticipate achievements yet to come, we have scheduled a day full of activities in the Garden for GFE enthusiasts of all ages. We would love for you to be a part of this day where we will honor the many hands and hearts that have touched this garden over the last 20 years!"
