Hilltown Families on Mass Appeal: May Segment
Resources that Support Garden-Based Learning
Hilltown Families and Mass Appeal (a weekday, hour-long lifestyle program on NBC) have teamed up to offer a live monthly segment on WWLP 22News! Each month, Hilltown Families’ Founder & Executive Director, Sienna Wildfield, joins Mass Appeal host, Ashley Kohl, to talk about ways to engage in your community while supporting the interests and education of your children (and yourselves!).
This monthly segment continued on Thursday, May 28, 2015, this month looking at community-based education through the lens of gardening. Sienna and Ashley talk about ways to expose our families to gardening-based learning experiences, both with in the garden and out in your community.
Using the seasons as a catalyst for learning can help connect kids to their environment and the seasonal cycles of their community. Garden-based learning is just one activity that is on many minds every spring. Stop and think what else cycles around each year and how you can use it as a point of entry to community-based education. Then take advantage of your local resources, following your interests and education through community engagement.
Discover local events and resources that make connects and support garden-based learning in our post, Learning through the Lens of Gardens.
Mass Appeal is a live weekday program that airs at 11am on 22News (Springfield, MA). Our next visit to the Mass Appeal studios will be Thursday, June 25!
