Ends:  Jun 21, 2024 09:00:00 PM (PT)

This event is hosted by Life Lab at Life Lab's Garden Classroom on the UC Santa Cruz Campus.

Learn to use a garden to breathe life into standards-based lessons, promote ecological literacy, encourage a love of nourishing foods, and support students’ social development. Using Life Lab’s The Growing Classroom activity guide for grades K-6, participants in this hands-on workshop experience tried-and-true garden-based lessons linked to Common Core Language Arts and Math and Next Generation Science Standards; practice basic gardening techniques; and develop management strategies for a school garden program.
