In this teacher Pro-D workshop, learn how to grow an ecologically-friendly school food garden by fostering relationships between soil, plants and animals.
This workshop is designed for teachers who are enthusiastic about gardening, ecology and cultivating a healthy garden ecosystem. It is also for others in the school community who are interested in school gardens, such as support workers and parents.
Explore how to grow a garden in concert with nature. Learn how to attract insects and birds to help pollinate crops and eat pesky pests. Discover why you should rotate a diversity of plants. Be introduced to crops that are well suited to the west coast and the school year. Investigate how to inexpensively build healthy soil. See how a school food garden can be a living demonstration of plant and animal life-cycles, adaptations and interconnection. Instruction will include hands-on activities, group work, and outdoor exploration in the Garden. Sponsored by the Vancouver Master Gardeners.
