    Can’t download your resources because my computer says it is not secure,

     
    1. Zen no mind

      You can add a security exception by clicking the “advanced” button in Firefox. The problem your browser is reporting is that the certificate is for all wordpress sites and not just for loriroseholistic.

        Thank you for helping out Zen.

      It’s actually a fairly common WordPress message, but it isn’t necessarily cause for panic. If it makes you nervous, and you have a USB drive, download the files onto it instead of to your hard drive, and when the downloads are complete, check the drive with your AV program before transferring the files to your hard drive.

       
      1. Marjory Wildcraft

        The TGN team is contacting Lori about the webpage security issues.

    Lori, this was absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much for this…I am in DFW area (Wylie) and starting school gardens in my community has been a goal of mine since purchasing our home…and you’ve really helped to me to get started !!!

     
  6. Terry

    Hello Lori! You are wonderful and this was amazing! Thank you so much for doing what you do!

    I love these presentations geared for teaching children as one can find or discover are techniques that can be used by disabled senior citizens with back problems or disabled children who are in wheelchairs.

    This is a wonderful way to help the disabled population get out and smell the roses.

      I just wish there was an edit button in the comment section as my vision is impaired, and often I cannot see my mistakes until after my post has been published.

        Hi Maria,

        Whoo, hoo! Me too My vision is quite bad and my typos are littered all over these pages! LOL

        I’ll put your suggestion in for our next Summit.

         
  8. Jane

    Great presentation. I am currently working on our County Recreation Department that has lots of land to set up a Senior Garden. This garden could provide wholesome food for our senior centers. Thank you. Loved your enthusiasm.

     
  9. Cherie

    I worked in a youth service organization for over 20 years and this information would have been solid gold to me! I hope current teachers and anyone working with children and gardening will take advantage of this wealth of information and enthusiasm!

     
  10. M. E.

    Thank you for your session and ‘labor of love’ along with your successes and failures on how to do it all.

    Teach the children how to ‘farm’ and they in turn can teach the family and others and have good, healthy food for life. Thank you again!

     
  11. Abran

    This is very thorough and well presented, wonderful materials!

     
  12. Princi

    Thank you for the detailed information. When I click the “Click here for free school garden resources”, it goes the to Hill College website. Is there a link of that site?

     
    1. Lori Rose

      Hi Princi,

      I am so sorry that happened. I am not sure what the issue was with the link from the summit, but:

    Thank you so much! As someone who’s been trying to the secret doorway to interesting my colleagues in our school garden for quite some time, I think you’ve just provided the key. Much appreciated!

     
  14. Taylor Young

    Of course, none of the links in the video are clickable and they are printed beneath the video and after writing down the long link at then end and then typing it into two different browsers, it comes up with a Lori Rose Page but no Dropbox for signup in sight. The print on her site is light and small and frustrating to try to wade through to find the right place.

     
    1. Taylor Young

      When I say that the print on her site is light and difficult to read, I am not talking about the site that the picture on the right of the video takes you to. I am talking about the site page I went to when I used the Dropbox URL, with the picture of her in a headband. I looked throughout that site as well as the site I am taken to when I click on the picture to the right. I wrote her an email, but just sayin’ it could have been a little easier. I don’t think Marjory knows that you can’t click on the links in the video itself.

       
      1. Marjory Wildcraft

        Hi Taylor,
        No, we didn’t set it up for the videos to have clickable links in them. Uh, that is another level we haven’t gotten to! With all the millions of details in ogrganzing one of these events… I am not sure we will get to that feature for a while. But Ive got it written down as a suggestion.

    if anybody has the issue of seeing the drop box link just hit advance and allow it and it will take you to the site

      thanks for helping out Andrew!

       
  17. Maxine Ogles

    Thanks,, we already have school project on going at our Coop. and have good participation..

     
  18. Bekki

    Thanks; great presentation. I honestly believe that with all the hungry in our Nation; we should have every available piece of land growing food for the poor, and homeless. We should be teaching these techniques; because 80 percent of our food is being imported. If something would occur with our food supply; we would be in a terrible situation. History always repeats itself over and over again and it is expected to happen; to every Nation, someday. There are food banks that are implimenting growing hydroponic systems and I hope this continues to grow outward into schools and retirement communities and restaurant communities.

     
    1. Marjory Wildcraft

      Hi Bekki,

      Is it really htat much? 80% of our food is imported/ And I am assuming you meaa the US?

      I often that the American food supply really is imported if you realize the food grown is utterly dependant on fossil feuls. And the US imports so much petroleum.

      Was that your thinking too?

       
  19. Molly

    Great presentation, Lori! My youngest’s school is building an outdoor learning center soon but I’m not sure if it includes a garden. I’ll have to find out, and if there’s no garden I’ll suggest one.

    One question that I can see coming though is who takes care of the garden during the summer vacation months?

     
    1. Lori Rose

      Great question Molly! The schools handle that different ways: just mulching it over until they return for the fall, planting drought tolerant plants that they then harvest when they come back, having a summer school garden club, or having parents sign up to water/harvest on different days throughout the summer.

       
  20. Annie

    Very thorough presentation -much appreciated! I would be quite interested in doing something like this, but it clearly takes quite a bit of time to organize it all and we need to make a living. In your experience, is it something one can charge for and make a living at? If so, where would the money come from?
    Thank you again!

     
    1. Marjory Wildcraft

      Annie,

      I think there are some poeple who are making some money part time doing this. I suggest you contact Lori through her website. Schools do have some budget. There is also grant money available. m

       
      1. Annie

        Thank you, Marjory.

         
    2. Lori Rose

      Hi Annie,

      Great question! There is a school group called Real School Gardens that frequently hires. I would check them out. You could also be a consultant for the school, and the school would fund it. Some schools actually hire full time “gardeners” if they have an established garden.

       
  21. Adi Setia

    Hi Majory & Lori

    Great work, great presentations.

    The school garden project is turbo-superbly presented and its insights can be extended/applied to say varsity/college gardens, and all community gardens too.

     
  22. JoAnne

    I tried to access the School Garden Resources as we are working on a school garden for a rural Argentine school. However it takes me to another link, that of Lori’s program at the Hill College:

    Please pass me the link. Thanks JoAnne
