|Emerson Garden is Taking Shape|
Emerson Elementary School is getting a new garden learning space. We have had many volunteers working hard to safely build this garden in small groups over the past two weeks. The garden is really beginning to take shape. We are looking forward to a time when the space will be full of eager learners exploring the natural world.
|GROW Your Outdoor Learning Skills|
Facebook Live Event
Being outdoors has shown to be one of the safest places during the pandemic, so we want to help create learning opportunities outdoors while you are at home. Please check our website for resources and join us for “GROW your outdoor learning skills” an online discussion with ideas for taking your learning outdoors and we’ll take feedback on what resources to help further provide this fall. Join us: Tuesday, August 18th at noon for a Facebook Live event.

We are thrilled to see so many kids participating in our Virtual Bountiful Garden Tour. We appreciate all the hard work each child put into their gardens, and we cannot wait for the rest of the community to see what a great job they have done!
