  • Discover the basics of gardening
  • Learn to care for creation and eat healthily
  • Identify intersection points with science, math, writing and religion curriculum
  • Raise funds to support our Organic Teaching Garden
  • Build community amongst other students, school families, church members and the wider Conejo Valley

Join us for this year’s Tomato Sale – happening on Earth Day Weekend!

Friday, April 20, 2:30-5:30 PM (with farm animals onsite!), Saturday, April 21, 5:30-7:30, and

Sunday, April 22, 9:00-1:30 (with a picnic lunch at noon).

Have you ever considered the “spiritual necessity of nature?”


Have you ever considered the “spiritual necessity of nature?”  Come gather together for a garden lunch and discussion of Richard Louv’s book Last Child in the Woods.  In the book, he writes, “When my son Matthew was four, he asked me, ‘Are God and Mother Nature married, or just good friends?’  During the course of researching this book, I heard many adults describe with eloquence and awe the role of nature in their early spiritual development.”
Garden Lunch and Book Discussion – Last Child in the Woods
We hope you will join us for this timely discussion as Ascension Lutheran School works towards getting certified as a Nature Explore school… and as we dream of bringing new vitality and growth to our central garden… and as we celebrate the church season of “Creation”.  Children and youth are welcome to come to this lunch with their families.  While we have a book discussion, there will be youth available to watch over and play in the garden with any young children who are present.  You are invited to bring a healthy lunch item to share.
Pastor Chamie will be leading the book discussion.  For questions or wonders, you can contact her at cdelkeskamp@alschool.org.
