2022 4-H School Garden Conference
Celebrate Community through Gardening at the Eighth School Garden Conference!
COLUMBUS-The eighth 4-H school garden conference will take place Friday, October 28th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on the OSU Campus. The theme this year is Cultivating Common Ground.
School gardens are a way to bring a community together through shared experiences of planting, harvesting, cooking and more. Learn about the diversity that a garden has to offer including animals and insects in the garden, different methods of cooking nutritious meals from the harvest, varying program approaches from pre-K to twelve, and more. There is a common language spoken in the garden, and the conference will supply a context for learning some of the “languages.”
As an exciting addition to the day, School Gardens of Ohio members will be setting up regional networks at the conference.
Session presentations will be from those currently engaged in school gardening, as well as from garden experts and leaders. The $65 fee includes a light breakfast, lunch, and all materials. The event is sponsored by 4-H personnel at OSU Extension, Franklin County (franklin.osu.edu).
