Re: after school programs

One of our schools has a very successful after school garden program based on reading.  Its called Reading in the Garden.  It was fairly easy to get a few hundred dollars from a civic club to buy child level books on gardening, nature, ect.  On nice days the group does some weeding, garden tending, and other outdoor activites, and they connect the hands-on with the books the group reads together.  This has been so popular that too many kids sign up each semester.

Just an idea.

Hello all – I am working on starting up an after school gardening program at one of the inner-city elementary schools here in Cincinnati.  We have a nearby children’s garden in the community with which I have done summer programming for the neighborhood kids over the past couple of years. I am looking to expand the program throughout more months of the year to keep the kids engaged and to create a greater sense of ownership in the garden.  I am searching for similar programs that have been successful around the country.  Any info you can provide will be well appreciated.  Many thanks in advance.
