Open house to show off school gardens

The Maine School Garden Network is organizing a network of open house events at schools across the state on Oct. 1 to show off school gardens.

The School Garden Open House comes on the heels of Maine Harvest Lunch Week, a week when participating schools serve lunches that are — as much as possible — locally grown.

The open house showcases gardens tended to largely by students, and offers those students a chance to celebrate their fruit and vegetable offspring publicly.

Visit the Maine School Garden Network website for help in planning an open house and to view a list of participating schools. Contact the Network by email at info@msgn.org.
