Extension has designed a creative approach to school garden education this summer. On June 16th a no-cost, symposium consisting of four webinars will be conducted through a Zoom classroom.
10 AM Adding Fruit Plant to Your School Garden with Ashley Hoppers, Gilmer and Fannin County ANR agent
11 AM Seed Saving in the School Garden with Rosann Kent with University of North Georgia
Noon – 1 PM Lunch Break
1 PM Vermiculture (worm composting) with Josh Fuder, Cherokee County ANR Agents
2 PM Using the Great Georgia Pollinator Census in Your School Garden with Becky Griffin, the census coordinator
The lunch break, from noon until 1 PM, will be a chance to ask any questions about your school garden and to network with other gardens while we have our lunch.
Additional at-home activities will be available for those who want to put their new skills to immediate use. For those who complete all four webinars and all four at-home activities a Certificate of Completion will be issued. This can be presented to your school administration for proof of course completion.
You will be ready to get results from your school garden before school starts back in the fall. This is open to anyone who works with school gardens – Master Gardeners, volunteers, and educators of all types.
