In 2011 and 2012 hundreds of educators attended this event in Waldoboro and Buckfield. One teacher remarked, "This is an incredible day where you can learn so much about making a school garden really valuable for our students! Hands on, real-life lessons that satisfy standards! It's a win-win situation!"
Classes throughout the day will focus on topics such as How to start a School Garden, Heritage Seeds, Lessons and Activities, Cooking from the garden and MORE!
Through a partnership with Knox - Lincoln County Cooperative Extension and the Maine School Garden Network, Maine Ag in the Classroom is pleased to offer this timely program for educators that are interested in starting or growing a garden program.
