Thanks! I'm actually not involved in the Green Ribbon planning for the October 29th event (that's our Director of Sustainability and Environmental Programs, Jenny Cooper), but I am happy for folks to contact me about our school garden and how we incorporate produce into our lunch program. *Sorry...no microphone or camera* :(

Danika, I think the NW Youth Garden Summit was about 35-45 ppl? I went last year, Mallorie (GRuB), a couple people from Lower Columbia School Gardens in Kelso/Longview and Common Threads were there.

Love, love, love. Yes — parents/PSO are typically the agents of change/drivers in school gardens. Gardens connect the entire school community (family engagement, health and wellbeing, science standards and more).

Great Question Chris - My two cents about what is needed in the realm of curriculum - Knowing that OSPI is supporting school gardens as an effective classroom is HUGE! Having a repository of curriculum in the typcial categories (soil, organisms, habitats, plant growth etc.) at the OSPI website that are "certified" by OSPI as meeting NGSS and in what ways....is that possible to work towards something like that?
