Education

Education and Community Outreach

Greenspace strives to educate younger generations on how easy it is to grow their own healthy and flavorful food. Our farm market booth included a free grow-your-own sunflower activity table that encouraged children to fill containers with soil, plant seeds, spray with water and then take home to watch their sunflower seeds germinate and grow into healthy food in just 10 days! 
 
School Science Expos, local Conservation Districts and farm markets have allowed us to reach over 500 children with our activity table each year. This is just the beginning! We look forward to reaching more and more students each year to teach them that growing delicious food is an easy and fun activity with many healthy benefits. Here are the schools and community programs we’ve been honored to be a part of.
