Garden Stories: Leadership Workshops

Helping your life story bloom

Garden Stories: Leadership Workshops provides interactive programs for children designed to:

  • Heighten the children’s curiosity about gardening and nature
  • Promote healthier life styles by learning more about food sources
  • Increase children’s self-confidence and ability to collaborate with others
  • Strengthen ties between the children’s organization, parents, community garden and other partners involved in our program 

Garden Stories: Leadership Workshops works collaboratively under the ALF program umbrella.

Garden Story Books 2019

At the end of the spring semester we created book from our drawings to show anyone and everyone and especially our parents everything that we learned. Both Scott and Nicole’s classes created a book. Please download and look at all of our accomplishments this spring.
