New EDS Gardening Initiative in After School Program

EDS After School is excited to announce a new program open to all Lower School and Middle School Students. On the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month we will be going out to the Flowing Wells Campus to learn more about gardening, planting, cooking, and more! Mr. Joe Kirstein, Boardman Chair of Science and Sustainability, is excited to work with our students in an after school setting to go in depth on all aspects of gardening, and how it relates to the world around us. This special program will be on a reoccurring basis, with dates listed in the Panther Post. The September dates for the EDS Gardening Initiative are 9/16 and 9/30. To participate in these activities sign up here! Please email Elise Folk with any questions.

  1. LOVE the Sustainability and earth lessons that are being taught with the Gardening initiatives!! Keep that sort of lesson coming! These young folks will have to live with the effects of wasteful ways for years to come. They can begin to help mitigate the damage that has been done and the lack of appreciation for our Earth that’s been pervasive for too many years, especially here in the US. We have a long way to go to catch up to our European peers with regards to Reducing, Reusing, Recycling and Repairing of all the stuff that Americans consume. Thank you very much for beginning to instill the proper respect and knowledge these kids will require and need to pass along to our next generations!
