Introduction to School Gardening—Onsite Continuing Education
About this Class
School gardens and habitats provide excellent opportunities for cross-curricular learning while fostering awareness of the environment, wildlife, nutrition, life skills, and gardening.
This workshop is designed to introduce teachers to the benefits of school garden programs that incorporate direct links to classroom curriculum. Participants learn practical information on laying the groundwork for successful programs, visit local school gardens, receive feedback and advice from teachers, and take home curriculum resources and plant material. Additionally, on-site participants gain exclusive access to newly developed online course materials, presentations, and discussion information.
