Garden Educator Workshop: Spring Seminar 3: Eat
Seminar 3 wraps up the series to help teachers, parents and garden volunteers prepare to manage their gardens during the summer at the height of the growing season – an important part of year-round garden planning, especially for schools. Explore diverse ways of learning and taste the fruits of your labor!

Seminar participants will:

·         explore multiple models for summer garden management
·         learn what to plant and how to sustain production for the beginning of the next school year
·         harvest and prepare a simple garden meal to share with one another
·         practice how to lead basic cooking activities with students
·         experience hands-on lessons about insects and the garden ecosystem
·         discuss Integrated Pest Management practices
·         learn ways to measure what and how much students are learning in the garden

In the garden, we will tend and harvest plants that were started in Seminars 1 and 2, learn different harvesting techniques and explore watering methods. This session is a great way to wrap up the three-part series and incorporate what you've learned into a vision of success for your garden and 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.
