Friends,

I rec'd this from friends in Little Rock, AK who keep me posted on happenings 
at the Dunbar Community Garden, one of the finest school community gardens I 
know. To learn more about Dunbar (and the AUGER program ) just go to the ACGA 
website and click on the Arkansas/AUGER link.

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman
 
 As you know, Dunbar will be presenting a one day course on school gardening
 this summer in conjuction with 
 the UAMS Partners in Health Science Course Program
 
 These courses are normally aimed at science teachers in AR... and any other
 teachers interested in the subjects.  
 
 By special arrangement, this course will be open to others interested in
 school and community gardens, 
 esp Heifer partners and potential partners and those associated with the AR
 Hunger Coalition
 
 The course is free, but participants must register through the PIHS program
 the website is http://k14education.uams.edu/
 
  Please feel free to communicate this to your members via your newsletters
 and other communications to your partners, members and friends.

 School Gardens and School Curricular Objectives:
 A Hands-On, Edible, Educational Model
 
 
 Thursday, June 26, 2003
 9 to 2pm,  Dunbar Garden in Little Rock, AR
 
 
 This mini course will be held at the Dunbar Garden, not at UAMS. Dunbar
 Garden Project (DGP) is located at 18th and Chester (8 blocks S of 630).
 Participants need to drive/car pool to the DGP for this workshop.
 Registration at DGP will occur from 8:30-9 AM. 
 
 Participants will tour the garden and learn how: 1) curriculum objectives
 can be formally integrated into gardening classes, 2) school gardens can
 improve the diets of school children and 3) school gardens can be fun!  How
 school gardens might grow in different ways at other locations will be a key
 topic of discussion.  School gardens are a wonderful way to preserve the
 relationship between education and the natural world using the garden as a
 teacher.  They are also a proven means to improve the diets of school
 children.  
 
 
 The Dunbar Garden Project (DGP) in Little Rock is an award-winning school
 garden.  It's a 2 acre-outdoor classroom adjacent to Gibbs magnet elementary
 school, Dunbar middle school and the Williams public library.  The Garden
 provides over 150 hands-on gardening and environmental educational classes a
 year linked to school curriculum objectives.  The rest of the "Dunbar model"
 consists of a three-season job-training program for teenagers, an adult
 gardening section and gifting to local food pantries.  
 
 Professionally managed the Garden has been in operation since 1992.  In
 2002, the DGP became a Heifer Project Partner. Lunch will be provided.
