June Membership Content: Gardening

Spring is in bloom and green thumbs everywhere are getting their gardens ready! Whether you are an avid gardener or just dipping your toes in for the first time, we have created a How-To Guide (H2G) Toolkit for you to encourage your intergenerational (IG) efforts.

This toolkit outlines conversation starters about gardening, discusses different types of gardens for you to consider and is filled with great IG activites like charting plant growth, making garden markers and decor, reading books about gardening and making food together–from mud pudding with worms to fresh salsa with the harvest to celebrate the year’s success! As with all of our H2G toolkits, the engagements are all outlined with Bridges Together’s 5-Step program–including a template outlining the components of an IG event with timing to allow you to prepare.

You can access the How-To Guide for free as a Bridges Together member HERE. If you are not a member yet, you can join for $5/month HERE.

To help you prepare for this activity even more, Andrea Weaver will be presenting a webinar on this How-To Guide on Tuesday, June 19th, from 1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/may-how-to-guide-webinar-summer-movies-tickets-46074277404.
