SUSTAINABLE EDIBLE EDUCATION DAY

Snakebean Community Food Garden, 19 October 2013. 9 – 2 pm

Snakebean Community Food Garden and Darwin Garden Education Network (DGEN) is excited to announce the inaugural Sustainable Edible Education Day (SEED).

Sustainable Edible Education day brings together people from the community who are engaged in all aspects of school gardening to share wisdom, experience and skills.

Members of community gardens, school gardens, administrators, educators, parents and sustainable food advocates are invited to participate in SEED, to be held at the Snakebean Community Garden on Saturday 19 October 2013, 9 am – 2 pm.

The DGEN is an informal, community-based group of volunteers linking people interested in community and school gardening across Darwin and the Top End.

Through working together we have enabled the community and school gardens to grow much faster than if we were working separately. Our hope is that the day will inspire others to participate in the sustainable transformation of our schools and our community into greener, thriving, healthier places to live.

The one-day gathering consists of a variety of workshops:

- hands-on workshops

- presentation of projects or ideas

- discussion circle to explore sustainable edible education and directions.

This is a unique opportunity to meet other school gardens practitioners from around our area, learn from their achievements, and together explore the role of school gardens in helping to bring about a more sustainable future.
