Help foster a brighter, healthier future for children in Central Texas by teaching youth to grow their own food. The Sustainable Food Center will teach you how to successfully start and sustain a school food garden. Topics covered include: organizing your garden team, planning and implementing your project, incorporating the garden into a curriculum, and fundraising. We won't be covering basic gardening principles, but can point you to a variety of resources on this topic (including our Citizen Gardener classes!). This workshop is for teachers, parents, and any community members looking to volunteer with school gardens.
Childcare and translation will be provided upon request.**
Registration required. Up to 3 people per school group can register.

Cost: Free. Participants will also have an opportunity to buy SFC's The School Farm guide at the training ($15).
