We’ve turned the corner on summer and we’re headed straight for fall! The start of the school means summer is officially over. We had a great summer camp season – we hosted 6 weeks of camp on the farm and had the largest number of campers THP has seen yet! Looking forward to doing it again next year, but for the next 10 months we’ll be focused on our school year programs: The Intensive Garden Program at Hatch and Farallone View and our field trip program at the San Mateo County School Farm. Looking forward to a full school year of farm and garden education!

Garden Educators’ Training
THP is excited to host a 1-day intensive on garden based learning put on by the wonderful folks at Life Lab (UC Santa Cruz)! The focus of the workshop is to train educators to use the farm or garden to bring lessons and activities to life that promote ecological literacy, encourage healthy eating, and support standards based lessons. This FREE training will be held at theSan Mateo County School Farm on September 10th from9-3pm. This is a great opportunity for those looking to add to their teaching toolbox! We still have a few spots left, if you’d like to join email@example.com
Hatch Garden Update
We said goodbye to our old garden site at the end of the school year and have spent the past few weeks getting our new garden site set up. THP is now sharing a garden site with the Coastside Childrens Programs, come check it out! You can find the new garden the north east corner of the Hatch playground. The garden overhaul should be complete by the time the THP's Intensive Garden Program starts the second week of September.
