Where: Central Grade Elementary School, 301 W Seventh St. in Traverse City; (231) 933-5600

When: Sunday, June 2 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

What: Schools in Leelanau, Grand Traverse, Benzie, and Antrim counties will celebrate the inaugural School Garden Week to draw attention to the diversity of school-based gardening projects in our region.  From June 2 to June 6, the public is welcome to visit schools for “Garden Tour Days” to learn more about these projects, participate in fun garden activities, and meet the staff that helps run these programs.

The "Central Grade School Youth and Community Garden Planting Party" will kick off School Garden Week on Sunday, June 2, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The school community recently broke ground on its garden and needs help planting, weeding, and fundraising for 12 new raised garden beds. The event is donation-based and will feature music by The Accidentals and refreshments.
