Every year since 2019, the Governor of Wisconsin has signed a proclamation declaring the third Thursday of May as Wisconsin School Garden Day. The day brings recognition to the people and programs giving Wisconsin’s youth access to innovative, hands-on educational opportunities. It is typically celebrated by visiting school gardens. Early Childhood Education (ECE) programs and K-12 schools participated by posting online using the hashtag #wischoolgardenday.
