Noci Sonoma has generously donated extra veggie starts for school gardens and they're awaiting your pickup at
Ceres Community Project's Sebastopol garden site.
Staged in the far left side of the garden, on the pallets labeled SGN, you will find a few trays of large tomato plants, mostly Sunrise Bumble Bee variety, 1 tray of parsley, 1 tray of fennel & 1 tray of celery.
All the seeds are organic and are ready to be planted!
A special thanks to Noci for supporting schools gardens and for the Ceres garden for always hosting a place for SGN's free plants.

Like energy and transportation (which get most of the attention), agriculture is key to our climate future. As a sector, agriculture contributes to greenhouse gas emissions but is also buffeted by the changes caused by global warming. At the same time, farmers are in a position to help sequester carbon and work at the forefront of adapting to climate change. Come learn what climate-smart agriculture looks like, both on the ground and from a policy perspective.

Literacy learning in the garden classroom, like in any classroom, is most successful when students engage in tasks that promote authentic language use. What does that look like, exactly? Evidence supports activities that provide opportunities to read, write, and talk in the ways actual gardeners do. - Carrie Strohl
Learn how to connect cooking and gardening instruction to the Common Core ELA or Math standards and the Next Generation science standards.
This workshop, taught by science educator Carrie Strohl, is designed to develop educators’ understanding of how common garden activities can be adapted to become robust lessons designed to meet the current curricular standards expected in schools. We will spend our day both in the classroom and in the garden as we explore hands on lessons and deepen our understanding of how best to link the garden and classroom studies.
Instructor: Carrie Strohl earned her Ph.D. in science education from UC Davis. She specializes in standards-driven curriculum design, science-literacy integration, and garden-based learning. For six years, she engaged in research, curriculum development, and professional leadership at the Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley. Most recently, she teaches science methods to pre-service teachers and coaches teachers to integrate gardening and cooking at an environmental science magnet school in Napa, CA.

The National School Garden Network (NSGN) connects individuals and organizations working to support school garden programs at a district, regional, statewide, or national level. Members share resources and strategies for supporting multiple schools gardens, with the ultimate goal of aligning efforts across communities.
Selecting, Installing and Managing School Garden Bed Systems -- January 30th 1pm PST Choosing the best garden bed system for your school garden program can be an important contributing factor to long-term success. When you are working with multiple school garden sites, the number of variables to consider increases and using standardized bed systems with all of your schools can provide both benefits and challenges. In this webinar, we will hear from SGSOs who have developed standard garden bed packages and find out what has worked for them and how they source their materials.

Santa Rosa School Board will review their pest management policies...
Sonoma County Conservation Action has been working very hard with the Santa Rosa City Schools staff to eliminate the use of toxic synthetic pesticides, such as Roundup, from school campuses.
Chemicals, like Glyphosate, are known by the State of California to cause cancer and should not be used around youth!
We need to make sure that organic pesticides are used in place of these toxic synthetics.
Will you take 5 minutes to let the School Board know this needs to be a priority?
Join us! At the Santa Rosa School Board meeting Wednesday at 6:00pm held at Santa Rosa City Hall, 100 Santa Rosa Ave.
