Granny’s Garden School bloomed after founder Roberta Paolo was inspired to transform the grounds of Loveland Primary and Elementary schools into an educational garden.
Since its start in 2002, the program has since become the largest and most comprehensive school garden program in the Midwest, attracting the attention of more than 25 other schools from as far away as Louisville and Cleveland.
Now Granny’s Garden School will hold a series of five workshops on how to establish and operate a school garden program. The series, which are held from 9 – 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays, starts with “The Facts & Fantasy of Starting & Sustaining A School Garden Program” on Saturday, Jan. 22 and continues through March 12. Workshop information is available on the group’s website.
The workshops will be held at Natorp’s Garden Store at 5373 Merten Drive in Mason (click here for driving directions). Cost is $25 per person for each workshop or $100 for all five. For more information, go to www.grannysfardenschool.com or e-mail email@example.com.
