This activity is for all ages!

Feel free to do this activity whenever convenient for your family. Please drop off donations by Friday, December 18th.
We are excited to help our new nonprofit partner Young Audiences of Houston, which seeks to educate and inspire children through the arts, to make the arts an integral part of the school curriculum, and to advance the field of arts in education through teacher professional development training and community partnerships. Generation SERVE families will make Teacher Green kits to help Young Audiences with its Living Mural Project where students work with an artist outdoors to design, plan, create, and sustain a garden on their campus. We are asking for our volunteers to make 2-3 kits if possible.
In each Teacher Green Kit, please provide the following:
• Bag to hold Green Kit
• 5-10 small grow seed pots with corresponding amount of potting soil
• Seeds: any combination of cilantro, basil, mint, parsley, or rosemary
• Instruction card
• 25 garden color pages printed out, no crayons/markers (for each kit)
• One book per kit about gardening
• Watering can for outdoor garden
More detailed instructions and educational resources will be sent upon sign up.
