TRACK THE HARVEST!
Big Green is ramping up our harvesting and eating resources for all 144 Learning Gardens we now support in Chicago and we need to know how the gardens are producing! This spring as your gardens begin to produce the bounties we are encouraging all schools to use this google form to track what your gardens produce. We will record all the harvest information you send us and at the end of the school year send you a detailed report of what and how much you harvested as well as how many students participated in harvests at your school and how your and your garden teams used those harvests. This will be a great tool to share the success of your Learning Garden with all of your school community and will help with any grants or fundraising opportunities you might be interested in applying for. We will be compiling harvest information from all our schools to celebrate the impact that the Learning Gardens are having in the real food culture across Chicago and the nation.
All schools who track their harvests will automatically be entered into a drawing for a Harvesting Kit to be yours for all our future harvest seasons.
