Does your school have a functioning Student Government Association, Parent Teacher Association, Alumni Association? If so great! If not, 1st Saturday’s promotes schools to plan and create these school -based membership based organizations. Does your school have a garden and need assistance in improving it? The collaboration of these organizations is what we call #Familyhood. Every school should have their own #Familyhood and gain the capacity to operate their school garden, farmers market and future grocery store.

#Familyhood and it’s “do now” strategy of #1stSaturdays is a project of The Familyhood Connection Inc
We started reaching out to representatives of different organizations to ask for their support for #Familyhood.
Basically, we asked them to read this to understand #Familyhood and if they agreed to sign below:
#Familyhood Defined (Twitter.com/familyhood)
#Familyhood defines the school in any community as the center for community development and orchestrates an intergenerational approach to increasing community sustainability.
#Familyhood is driven by two mottos: Friends of school and Mo’ Better Food.
# Friends of school states
“every school shall have a Student Government Association, Parent Teacher Association and
Mo Better Food states,
“every school shall have a garden, a farmers market and a grocery store.”
The “do now” strategy to advance schools towards #Familyhood is called #1stSaturdays.
