HOW IT WORKS
Brooklyn School Gardens Crawl
Saturday, September 21, 2019
Rain or Shine
The Brooklyn School Gardens Crawl is a self-guided crawl or tour through many public school gardens that neighbors walk past every day. In our second year, our mission is to simply connect Brooklynites with the school gardens in their own backyards. Garden Train believes that every school should have a garden to help educate the next generation of environmental stewards with hands-on experience.
There’s no wrong way to crawl: visit one or more participating school gardens. Brooklyn is the borough with the most school gardens in New York City!

VISIT ONE OR MORE PARTICIPATING SCHOOL GARDENS
Participating school gardens will offer free activities for all ages and tours of the school gardens from 10 am to 2 pm. Visite one or all of the gardens, which are open one day of the year. Each garden will have a special theme for the crawl.
GET YOUR SCHOOL GARDENS PASSPORT STAMPED AT EACH SCHOOL GARDEN YOU VISIT
Each stamp you receive serves as a raffle entry for exciting and fun prizes for all ages. Share the love and be sure to post on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using the hashtag #BKSCHOOLGARDENSCRAWL and don’t forget to tag the respective school.
