Growing and Learning in Your School Garden

In this workshop, teachers and school staff, who have existing school gardens, will explore the multitude of ways we can expand and deepen meaningful academic learning in the garden classroom.

Cross-curricular examples of playful learning and inquiry will be shared, with reflections on how we can document and assess learning in a non-traditional classroom.

We will also review practical school gardening tips to enhance your student engagement, like strategically planting crops for harvests during the school year, soil preparation, summer watering solutions, and pest management tips and tricks. Classroom management, holding space for an emergent curriculum in the outdoor classroom, as well as ideas for funding your school garden will all be shared.
