October is National Farm to School Month, and the Ladybug for Girls Foundation, Inc. is excited to join in on the fun! This year, our partnering schools will be joining schools across Georgia to “Make Room for Legumes” for Farm to School Month! Students can expect some seriously fun opportunities to taste, grow, and learn about legumes. Share your “Make Room for Legumes” photos on social media with #makeroomforlegumes and #LadybugforGirls. Georgia Organics will be surprising active social media participants with features on their social media outlets and weekly raffle prizes to thank participants for sharing their legume adventures.
The Atlanta Botanical Garden presents The Curious Garden which features 11 site-specific installations created to highlight the Garden’s plant collections and plant conservation work by prompting visitors to make discoveries, ask questions and engage in conversations. Bold, often unexpected, man-made and altered natural materials are employed to direct the eye to focus on the simple beauty of nature. In some cases, art objects are suspended, piquing the curiosity even more when forced to look up at the magnificence of tree canopies and brilliant skies. May 6 – October 9, 2017 (Read More)
