Gardening for Food Justice

March 24 @ 10:30 am - April 28 @ 12:00 pm

Families will be engaged in an interactive 6-week gardening series that teaches skills for gardening through a food justice lens.

Only 10 tickets available!

WHAT: Each week’s session is guided by one essential question that we will answer together through fun gardening activities led by Ms. Pearl, executive director of the Brooklyn Heights Community Garden.

  1. Where does our food come from?
  2. How do we grow our own food?
  3. What do we plant and when?
  4. What is the life cycle of a plant?
  5. What can we cook with our food?
  6. How can we heal our communities through food justice?

WHO: This learning experience is designed to engage children in grades K-5, but younger or older siblings are welcome to join.

WHEN: Six consecutive Wednesdays starting March 24th-April 28th. We will begin at 10:30am and end around 12:00pm. Families are welcome to stay and eat lunch and engage in free play until 1pm.

WHERE: We will meet in the new learning space in the garden.

HOW TO DRESS: We recommend bringing layers as it could be cold or even hot. Boots or sturdy shoes and old clothing that can get dirty are highly recommended.

Masks are REQUIRED except for children under age 2. We will social distance as much as possible.

COST: $22/session per family ($132 for the entire series). Each session builds on the previous session.

REFUNDS: We will refund you for the series, more than 7 days from the start of the series. Within 7 days of the start of the series, we are not able to provide a refund.

ABOUT THE COMMUNITY GARDEN: Brooklyn Heights Community garden is a non-profit organization and has been feeding the community for the past 10 years. Ms. Pearl is the founder and is increasingly expanding the work of the garden to include this learning series.

Our Joyful Learning Community curates nature-based experiences for families and professionals that honors culture, explores well-being, and inspires joy. We do this by centering the past and present narratives and roles of Indigenous, Black and People of Color in nature.
