Upcoming workshop aims to support, inspire school gardening in Ann Arbor

Jenna Bacolor, Executive Director, Community Education and Recreation

It's not surprising that in a town that values locally-grown food as much as Ann Arbor, there's strong interest in school gardening. On Monday evening, March 23, the Ann Arbor Public Schools Farm to School Collaborative is hosting a School Garden Workshop aimed at inspiring first time school gardeners and supporting on-going gardeners.
