This 2-part training is for teachers, parents, and community members interested in starting (or reviving) and sustaining a school or a community garden. If you are a teacher, you may attend for free; please register directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. 5 additional need-based scholarships (non-teacher) are available; please email to request a spot.
Each training night will cover different content, so please plan to attend both nights. We will share the key components to a successful garden, including: organizing and building a strong garden team, creating a plan, site selection and basic design, managing the garden, and finding funds and resources to sustain the garden. You will also hear from a guest speaker and meet other school and community gardeners in the area. We won't be covering basic gardening principles, but we can point you to relevant resources.
Class participants must be 16 and older. Youth ages 12-15 may attend with purchase of an additional ticket and close parent/guardian supervision during class.
Please register only for yourself; additional participants should register separately for themselves.
