Sorry for the delay in posting this! Last month we finished our Green Tech series of online workshops. After six weeks of working together, the Green Technician program came to a close with a session considering the role school gardens can play in creating new solidarities with the earth. ▪For us, environmental activism is about creating “progressive ecologies” between the human and non-human.
During the discussion the Green Techs shared their reflections on environmental activism, considering the ways in which the programme has enhanced or developed their sense of school gardens as political spaces.
Throughout the programme we have been inspired by the generosity of the students to share their ideas and to take part in the activities. Their commitment to learning about the worldly nature of school gardens and their energy for using them to develop more hopeful futures has been a joy to be part of – we can’t wait to work with the group more over the summer!
