Plan an educational garden


Join us for 2 days of education to help you start and maintain a school garden! Taught by Extension Master Gardener Volunteers, this class is for groups of school teachers and staff who will tie garden learning to the classroom and possibly food to the cafeteria. Topics include: soil, composting, planting seeds and more – plus time to plan YOUR garden! This is a great course for every gardener-to-be, all grade levels, and existing or new school gardens. Gain continuing education hours while you connect to other schools and build your skill set for a fantastic garden.
