Wisconsin School Garden Day 2023
Governor Tony Evers will declare Thursday, May 18, 2023 Wisconsin School Garden Day! (Read Gov. Evers’s proclamation from 2022 here.) Wisconsin is a leader in garden-based education. This day brings recognition to the people and programs giving Wisconsin’s youth access to innovative, hands-on educational opportunities. You can participate in Wisconsin School Garden Day by engaging in some type of garden-based education activity or celebration on May 18, 2023 (or another day that week). We encourage everyone to celebrate Wisconsin School Garden Day in a way that best fits their programs. Any activity that involves kids engaging with a garden or gardening–including, but not limited to, activities around planting, observing, art, literature, STEM, weeding, and planning–can be a way to celebrate Wisconsin School Garden Day.
