Garden Educator Workshop: Spring Seminar 2: Grow

Seminar 2 delves into the core issues of creating a sustainable learning garden and connecting the garden to the classroom. Teachers, parents and volunteers will investigate the supporting infrastructure of a sustainable garden program, develop a year round garden and school calendar, garden program leadership, seasonal activities and lesson planning.   

Seminar participants will:
·         learn ways to connect the garden to the classroom
·         examine programming components such as volunteer management, fundraising, garden maintenance, community engagement, events and summertime garden care
·         explore the role for a successful garden coordinator(s) 
·         find synergies between the school year and growing calendar
·         learn how to develop a garden lesson on your own

While we’re outdoors, we’ll check on the seeds and transplants that were planted during Seminar 1. We will build a trellis, plant new spring crops, explore season extension techniques and other seasonal garden tasks that you can apply at your school garden. Gain experience creating and learning about practical lessons in a supportive and engaging environment that will inspire and empower you to share with your students. 

Hands-on, outdoor garden education is part of every seminar. Come dressed for the weather and prepared to have fun and get a little dirty!

We highly encourage teams of two or more people from a school or garden project to attend this workshop to strengthen your garden program. Teachers receive clock hours in this fun and rewarding workshop. Clock hours are included in the cost of the Workshop.
