Starting a School Garden Workshop
Friday, July 15, 2022
9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Wanting to start a kid-friendly garden at your school, farm, or community site? Looking for inspiration and new lesson ideas for a current educational garden? Community Food Initiatives (CFI) has over a decade of experience partnering with schools, farmers, and community groups in rural Appalachian Ohio to design engaging garden programs for youth from preschool through middle school.
In this workshop, discussion will include CFI's history of school gardening, lessons learned, and best practices for building fabulous garden education programs in small communities on a shoestring budget. There will be a tour of the rural Amesville Elementary School garden to see an example of a small but effective garden set up, and time to network with others involved in educational garden spaces. Each participant has their choice of a printed or PDF copy of our CFI School Garden Toolkit and will receive materials to complete several hands-on, take home activities that can be easily implemented in your own program or site.
Cost and Registration: $25. Includes your choice of a printed or PDF copy of the CFI School Garden Toolkit and all materials. Address will be provided upon registration. To register, visit the link below.
