Learn about gardening, greening and the environment, and how to incorporate it into classroom or after-school activities.
PHS Green City Teachers is a 5-session course that uses experiential learning (yes, get your hands dirty!) to help teachers, educators, administrators & others gain the skills to integrate horticultural and environmental education into curricula, after-school programs, and service-learning projects. This year’s specific topics will include basic horticulture, food gardening, indoor light gardening, trees, and dealing with climate change.
Fee for the course is $50. Take-aways include lesson plans, lesson supplies, books, light units, and plant material. After completing the course, teachers are given the opportunity to apply for up to $500 worth of in-kind support for their chosen project.
