GCNV August Luncheon – Back to School Gardening – Growing Healthy Kids

August 14, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

$10.00 – $15.00

Healthy Foods Come from PLANTS and not from a Plant!

August is Back to School Month!  School gardens take kids away from screens and put their hands in the dirt.  They learn about healthy food and where it comes from.  Garden Farms Foundation’s mission is to help kids on their journey to becoming healthy and educated adults.

About Our Topic & Speaker

Garden Farms Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, dedicated to enhancing garden programming in various underserved communities as well as schools from Pre-K through college campuses all across the Las Vegas valley. We work to enrich our community with farm-to-table events, educational curriculum, environmental awareness, art integration, nutrition education, farmers markets, produce donations and more. This, paired with hands-on garden lessons, provides the people of today access to the food security of tomorrow.

When I joined the Garden Farms team four years ago, I felt so lucky to find a job and a community that aligned so perfectly with my passions! Being able to educate children with these ideas is not only securing a system of sustainability for the environment, it is creating a system of sustainability for their own food access as well.

About Our Luncheons

Our monthly luncheons are a great way to network with like-minded, environmentally responsible and sustainability conscious business owners, leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, local and state officials, and community members. Each luncheon event includes lunch, legislative update, educational, and member provided raffle. Raffle tickets are available at the door for cash or charge. Members are encouraged to bring promotional materials about their businesses to be featured on our sign-in table.
