During three Saturdays in April, Green Our Planet and the KJS Family Foundation in partnership with Regenerative Edge-ucation offered three separate workshops for teachers at three local schools.
The purpose of the 8 hours of instruction was to train CCSD teachers in how to successfully use Green Our Planet’s Pre-K through 5th grade Outdoor Garden Classroom curriculum in their gardens. More than 100 teachers from over 40 CCSD schools participated and each received 1 PDE credit.
“The teacher training sessions were a great opportunity for teachers to get hands-on practice teaching STEM lessons in their gardens,” said Ciara Byrne, Co-CEO of Green Our Planet. “It was also a great way for them to share ideas with one another and for them to visit gardens at other schools.”
