OSSE is pleased to be a partner once again in the 2nd Annual Growing Healthy Schools Week, which celebrates school gardens and farm to school programs throughout the District. From October 20 to 26 school staff will work with local non-profits, farms and chefs to coordinate inspiring activities aimed at engaging students in a conversation about seasonality, plant cultivation, and nutrition.
Please join us for the kick-off event on October 21 from 10am to12pm at Thurgood Marshall Academy PCHS (2427 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave SE). Come and watch local chefs duke it out using fresh produce grown in Thurgood Marshall’s Great Garden. Parents bring your kids! Teachers bring your students!
