November, 2017, volunteers from USF, the US Green Building Council and Bethany Baptist Church gathered to build the reading garden at Cork Elementary, funded by the Tampa International Airport.
Bring your children to our Kids’ Kitchen tent for a lesson in plant-based cooking and samples of a tasty Very Berry smoothie.
All Turner-Bartels K-8 families and friends from the community are invited to the grand opening of the new TBK8 gardens located on the Upper Campus on Saturday, November 3, 10am-12noon. Our garden partner, Temple Terrace Farm2School, will be on hand to answer questions about future plans for the outdoor garden classroom and to provide tastings of plant-based dishes made from garden-fresh ingredients. Student volunteers from the USF College of Public Health are organizing activities around the theme of nutrition and healthy eating habits. Special thanks to our Green Apple Day sponsors, Tampa Bay Trane and The Phoenix Agency. We hope to see you at this fun and informative garden event!
We will weed and mulch the Greco Student Pollinator Garden and the Temple Orange trees. And we will feed the Rebel and Mystic, the miniature horses that are part of the school agriculture program.
Moved and cleaned TBK8 classroom gardens this morning and prepped for fall planting. Great team work with PTA volunteers, TTF2S and teachers!
