FROM HEALTHY SOIL TO HARVEST
Tues-Thurs, July 15-17 at UC Berkeley Richmond Field Station, 9:30AM -3PM
This comprehensive 3-day program provides educators with the tools to design, begin, and teach from a school garden. The course starts with designing a garden, selecting appropriate plants, and getting to know your soil type and water needs. You'll also learn composting, basic plant botany, propagation, and kid-friendly cooking from the garden. Practical activities and background information will give you what you need to jumpstart a garden at your school and enrich your students' learning experiences.
*Hands-on activities in our Demonstration Teaching Garden. 2.5 CEU available
