School Gardening Basics – Workshop (School Gardens Series #1)

November 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Brought to you by the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at UBC Farm, and Classroom Gardener Megan Zeni.

In this workshop teachers, educational assistants, school councillors and other district personnel are invited to broaden their understanding of how a school garden can be used like any other classroom. We will review the social, emotional, cognitive and physical benefits of having a school-yard garden, as well as outline the practical tips and tricks that make gardening with kids enjoyable for everyone.

You do not have to be an experienced gardener to attend this session. Participants will leave with a cross-curricular understanding of how to start growing, playing and learning outdoors with the children in their care. Participants will take home ready to use ideas and suggestions for cross-curricular garden learning. A handout with BC specific cross-curricular connections.  Enroll in all three workshops as a short course, and receive a 15% discount!
