Food Literacy Summer Author Series – Libraries Full of Life: School Gardens and Literacy with Rick Swann

Dig into food literacy this summer with our Readers to Eaters Author Series sponsored by South Carolina Farm to School. Meet award-winning author Rick Swann when he presents “Libraries Full of Life: School Gardens and Literacy” 

Arden Bucklin-Sporer and Rachel Kathleen Pringle in their book How to Grow a School Garden describe school gardens as “libraries full of life, mystery, and surprise.” I agree. For me, being in a garden is like reading a good book. Conversely, a book set in a garden can transport you outside and into that garden even if you’re trapped inside on a rainy day. In this talk, I’ll use Our School Garden! as well as other award-winning garden-themed books and resources to examine ways educators can bring literacy and literature into the school garden.
