School Garden Info

The Greater Olympia Convivium (Chapter) helped create the Roosevelt School Garden, providing money, plants, and labor.  We have provided starts and volunteers to work with the kids at Meadows Elementary School garden. Our convivium continues to support school gardens by providing volunteers to work with kids in the gardens and providing plant starts as needed.

Support for a Slow Food project at Meadows Elementary School (Lacey)

In 2012, we provided volunteers to help students during their 45 minute time in the garden.  Students each had a garden bed to tend.  Their peas, greens, and radishes were ready to harvest by the end of the school year.  

We also provided volunteers to pack up mini CSA boxes that low income youth took home to their families.  

Karen Ray of the Food Bank provided expertise and connection with the school for this work with students.
