Food, Nutrition Lessons at Seminary

Tulsa Public Schools Kindergarten Gardeners to Learn Food, Nutrition Lessons at Phillips Theological Seminary/StoneSoup Community Venture Seeds of Hope Garden


WHO: Kindergarten classes from Lewis and Clark Elementary School, StoneSoup, and Phillips Theological Seminary students and staff.

WHAT:  The kindergarteners will tour the community garden and learn how the plants there turn in to produce in the grocery store. They will also learn about pollination while walking through the seminary wildflower meadow. The children will watch a video on nutrition and have a healthy snack.

WHEN: May 6, Wednesday, 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

WHERE:  Seeds of Hope community garden space. 765 N. Mingo Rd., Tulsa (just south of the seminary at the Tabbernee Conference Center).

BACKGROUND:  The Seeds of Hope community garden was planted in order to educate and empower people living in the area. Volunteers with StoneSoup Community Venture and Phillips Seminary have previously visited with the kindergarten classes at Lewis and Clark Elementary School to conduct a planting demonstration and tell stories about growing food. The volunteers for The Story, Soil and Seeds Presentation also discussed the importance of nutrition and sharing of food with others. The produce from the garden will be used in a meal prepared for the community by StoneSoup's primary project, Tulsa's Table, a pay-what-you-can community cafe. StoneSoup's mission is to establish food justice projects that move people from dependency to autonomy. More than 40 percent of residents in the three ZIP codes surrounding Phillips have incomes below the poverty level. And more than half of the children living in those ZIP codes live below the poverty level.
