BRIT Brown Bag Botany

Changing the World, One School Garden at a Time

Jeanne McCarty, Executive Director, REAL School Gardens


Jeanne McCarty will discuss a growing movement in Fort Worth and across the nation that brings the “wild” back to childhood: school gardens.  Currently REAL School Gardens works with 1,300 educators and more than 28,000 children in 54 schools in North Texas to cultivate a deeper connection to nature. Ms. McCarty will highlight the success of REAL School Gardens in the Dallas/Fort Worth community and the model it can provide for the rest of the country. Using nature for learning is a key way to cultivate conservation-minded youth who will forever be stewards of the earth.
