Alaska Seeds of Change Summer Garden Program

 

 

 

 

Are you looking for other day camp options for your child(ren) this summer? The Anchorage-based nonprofit Alaska Seeds of Change is looking to hold an interactive summer gardening program to teach youth about how to start, grow, and maintain fresh and local Alaskan produce. In order to best serve you and your child(ren)’s needs, we have created a quick survey to determine how we should administer our program. If you think your child(ren) would be interested in learning more about gardening and the local food system, we invite you to take this quick 5 minute survey. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions about the survey, or have problems with the link, please contact Kelly Ballantyne or Rebecca Knapp at volunteer@akseedsofchange.com. We ask that you submit all of your responses by Friday February 28th.
