Learn how to use the garden as your classroom in April.
In partnership with Field to Family and Backyard Abundance, Iowa City Parks and Recreation will host a school garden workshop, “Teaching the Next Generation: The Garden as Your Classroom” on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at the Robert A. Lee Recreation Center Outdoor Classroom, 220 S. Gilbert St. This class is open to teachers, school district staff, early care and education providers, garden volunteers and all who are interested in using gardening as an education tool in Johnson and neighboring counties.
Presenters at this free workshop will share school district and community resources that support learning about the outdoor environment, showcase versatile designs for outdoor classrooms, demonstrate activities that support new science standards, and offer hands-on lessons in the garden for PreK-12 students.
Kelly Hanson, Farm to Early Care Education Program Specialist with the Iowa Association for the Education of Young Children, will share pre-K garden learning activities.
Jen Kardos, Co-Director Backyard Abundance, along with Jenni Mettemeyer, Shimek school garden leader, will demonstrate ways to use elementary science curriculum (FOSS) in the garden.
Michelle Kenyon, Field to Family Program Director and ICCSD Farm to School Coordinator, will cover general resources available to school gardeners and those creating and maintaining outdoor classroom space.
Elizabeth Maas, Restoration Ecologist, Kirkwood Community College, will demonstrate an activity following the Next Generation Science Standards
Breanna Shea, Outreach Coordinator and Tony Loeser, Water Resources Engineer from Iowa Flood Center will demonstrate a new community resource to teach about water quality.
“This event features a hands-on component that demonstrates how to teach current district science curriculum in the garden,” explains Jen Kardos, Co-Director of Backyard Abundance. “Being thoughtful in the design of our school gardens means they can be used as outdoor classrooms effectively without adding to a teacher’s workload.”
In addition to the activities listed, the Iowa Flood Center will demonstrate a new, interactive erosion table, highlighting how it can be used in teaching outdoor ecology.
Iowa City Parks and Recreation received a DNR REAP Conservation Education Program grant to partner with the Iowa Flood Center on new water quality educational classes, which will compliment the City's growing line of ecology programs.

Support for this event comes from the City of Iowa City and New Pioneer Food Co-op.
ABOUT OUR PARTNERS:
ICCSD Farm to School Chapter: The ICCSD Farm to School chapter, a program of Field to Family, is one of 27 Iowa Farm to School chapters throughout the state that is working to get kids thinking about where their food comes from and adding more local foods to school lunches. The program has three components: providing support for school gardens, sourcing local foods for school lunches and hosting education programs on the farm to table process called, Farmer Fairs, which are in-school field trips where students get to meet local farmers, learn from nutritionists and participate in a hands-on gardening workshop as well as eat locally harvested, lightly processed fresh seasonal foods. fieldtofamily.org/programs/farm-to-school/

Author Thomas Frank will read from his new book, “Listen, Liberal: Or, What Ever Happened to the Party of the People?,” at the Iowa City Public Library on Tuesday, April 4.
Hailed as “the most prescient book” of the year, "Listen, Liberal" accurately describes what ailed the Democratic Party even before the election of 2016 made their weaknesses obvious. It is the story of how the “Party of the People” detached itself from its historic constituency among average Americans and chose instead to line up with the winners of our new economic order.
This free event will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. in Meeting Room A.
Frank is the author of "Pity the Billionaire," "The Wrecking Crew," and "What’s the Matter with Kansas?" A former columnist for The Wall Street Journal and Harper’s Magazine, Frank is the founding editor of The Baffler, a printed and digital magazine of art and criticism, and writes regularly for Salon magazine.
This event is co-sponsored by the Iowa City Public Library, Johnson County Democratic Party, Iowa City Federation of Labor, University of Iowa Public Policy Center, and Prairie Lights.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase from Prairie Lights.
For more information, contact the Library at 319-356-5200.
