Rick Swann is a former school librarian and now teaches writing, animation and book making to children for Powerful Schools in Seattle. Our School Garden! marks his picture book debut and he is currently working on a novel for tweens. He loves gardening and likes to remind his students: "Being in a garden is like reading a good book: you’re never sure what is on the next page, but you can’t wait to get there and find out."
This event is co-sponsored by Common Threads Farm, whose mission is to connect young people with healthy food through hands-on, seed-to-table educational experiences. The "Common Thread" throughout their programs is a commitment to food competency, food literacy, food justice, and youth empowerment. Common Threads cultivates all of these through joyful, purposeful cooking and gardening experiences.
