Teacher Trainings

Thinking about planting an edible garden at your school?  Have a school garden and don’t know how to care for it, or even what’s in it?  Want to use the garden as part of your curriculum, but don’t know how?

Let the garden and education experts from the Wylde Center teach you what to do!

Our one-day training courses for educators open up the eyes and minds of teachers and staff to see edible school gardens as a versatile, hands-on teaching tool – and give them the skills to use this green resource, too.  Whether Language Arts or Math, Science or History, Agriculture or Art, school gardens are fertile ground for lessons and learning across all grade levels.

Even better, these trainings are tailored to your needs.  Curricular strategies are tailored to the grade levels of your students.   Trainings are done on-site at your school garden, so you know how to take care of it, what’s growing in it, and how to specifically use your garden to teach.

Choose between three workshop options:

Teaching in Your Edible Garden
Installing and Maintaining Your Garden
Growing Green Futures: Teaching in and Maintaining Your School Garden

 

Spring and summer are a great time for garden trainings, giving teachers the chance to incorporate the garden into their curriculum plans for next year.  So don’t wait – sign your school up for a teacher training today!

See you in the school garden!
