Cville School Gardens Prep for "Cultivate C'ville" Tours
People were working in the garden Friday at Clark Elementary School, preparing for Saturday’s Cultivate C’ville tour.
The tour will lead people to four different Charlottesville schools to show the progress they've made on building learning gardens to incorporate into their curriculum.
One father of Burnley-Moran Elementary School students says he got involved in the garden there after he saw the benefit it offered his kids.
"Instead of just reading the book simply, they actually went through, and studied the characters, and made garden elements, decorations for the garden that were storyboards, and scarecrows, and character cards, and then they actually planted the seeds from Mr. McGregor's garden,” said Matthew Darring, Burnley-Moran garden coordinator.
The Cultivate C’ville tours start Saturday. There are tours at 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 11:30 a.m.
