Establishing and Maintaining School Gardens

School gardens have been spreading widely during the last few years and offer an amazing opportunity for outdoor educational experiences as well as indoor lessons and activities that compliment nearly any subject area. Beginning new school gardens can be a daunting task, but there is no need to be overwhelmed. With careful consideration and planning, teachers, administrators, parents and outside agencies can establish and maintain school gardens that engage students and the school community at large. This webinar will cover the establishment process from siting to funding a garden, provide an overview of curriculum resources, and look at the human element with an eye toward sustaining garden programs over the long term.

Presenter: Josh Dolan, Finger Lakes Eat Smart New York/Cornell Cooperative Extension, Tompkins County

This webinar will be recorded and a link to the recording will be available on this page.
