This workshop is for you!*

This  hands-on workshop will teach you how to incorporate gardening, food
and outdoor education across the curriculum to improve student achievement,
increase student focus, and foster respect for the environment.  This
workshop provides K- 5 educatorswith the opportunity to participate in
hands-on outdoor classroom/garden and food based activities, learn about the
Farm to School program, and plan a classroom mini-unit to use in the Fall
semester. This workshop will be taught by educators Lindsay Wyczalkowski,
Nichole Lupo, Ashley Rouse and Erin Croom.

Note: Participation by two or more educators from the same school is
beneficial for collaboration, and will create a strong support system for
implementing gardening into instruction. After school and other non-formal
educators are invited to participate as well.
