Gardening and Cooking with Youth

Come to Martin Luther King School (35 Camp St. near Olney St.) this Saturday, October 2nd, to learn how you can engage kids in learning to grow and prepare food! SCLT’s education director extraordinaire Leo Pollock and Kids First RI‘s Kimberly Clark will be running two concurrent “stations” to demonstrate hands-on gardening activities and simple recipes that are ideal for teaching young people about agriculture, ecology, and nutrition. Whether you’re a parent/mentor looking for a weekend project or an educator/youth leader looking for a creative lesson plan, this Plant Providence event will provide you with resources and ideas to get youth involved at home and at school. The free workshop begins at 10 a.m. and will go for an hour; you are encouraged to bring kids along. Hope you can make it!
