The Garden Play Project is your guide to exploring nature wherever, however, you find it.
Our story begins with the Resiliency Bags project. In the first days and weeks of Shelter-in-Place, our garden programs coordinated with local leadership and community members to provide weekly deliveries of fresh produce to families in need. Soon these bags evolved in their contents, providing pantry items and environmental education learning prompts for children and their families receiving Resilience Bags.
As the Center for Sustainability's outreach program, Bronco Urban Gardens partners both on and off campus, using place-based learning in and around urban gardens to create shared learning experiences for students of all ages and backgrounds (including SCU students) to build resilient, inclusive communities in the garden and beyond!
The Garden Play Project is our response to the pandemic as our place-based garden program couldn’t gather in the traditional way, in our usual spaces. This blog highlights co-created projects and content from the faculty and students working with BUG to maintain meaningful connections and cultivate healthy relationships with longstanding community partners.
