Life Lab Science Program Celebrates 30 Years
On Saturday May 30th, from 10:00 am-2:00 pm, Life Lab will celebrate its 30-year history with a Birthday Party at The Garden Classroom, located on the UCSC Farm. This free, garden-based family festival is open to all and will feature music from the Banana Slug String Band and the Rolling Cultivators along with a variety of kid-oriented activities.
The power of what a school garden could accomplish has evolved into the Life Lab Science Program, a nationally renowned not-for-profit organization that supports science and nutrition education through land-based learning. Life Lab has sold over 100,000 copies of its curricula and trained tens of thousands of educators in more than 45 states and a handful of other countries. “Seeing Michelle Obama and Maria Shriver installing edible gardens with children is one of the best birthday gifts Life Lab could receive,” says Life Lab’s Executive Director Gail Harlamoff. “It’s encouraging to see the type of work we’ve been doing for years going mainstream and getting national exposure.”
The Santa Cruz Education Foundation is a proud supporter of Life Lab science programs in Santa Cruz City Schools and delighted to partner with the Life Lab Garden Classroom. Congratulations!
