First Annual Oregon School Garden Summit a Huge Success!
It was thrilling and humbling to see that over 200 individuals came from almost every corner of the state to attend the School Garden Summit. Some people traveled over 300 miles! It was evident that this event helped to address a compelling need. We hope that attendees are able to bring some newfound energy from the Summit back to their schools and organizations to inspire students and other adults alike! For more information on the Summit go to: ODE School Gardens page
The Summit was a project of the Oregon Farm to School and School Garden Network with lead coordination by Upstream Public Health.
