Geneva Elementary School

Geneva Elementary School garden in Bellingham, WA

Yesterday I talked about the process of writing Our School Garden! at Geneva Elementary School in Bellingham. I spoke to the entire fifth grade and some of the fourth grade there. Their garden is supported by Common Threads Farm and is part of the Whatcom County School Garden Collective. It’s definitely worth following the link and reading about the program. I plan to follow up with a visit this summer to check out the summer in the garden programs that they run for kids and teens.

I was at Geneva at the request of an old friend, Mark Danielson, who is a fifth grade teacher at the school. I had a great time and even got to take in his son’s band, The Odd Ones, who played at an after school event. They were impressive! I hope to return at a future date.
