Join teachers from across Canada to dialogue in a community of practice! The Garden Classroom Series is free for practicing elementary school teachers, in partnership with Van Dusen Botanical Gardens, and generously funded with the support from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
The 2023/ 2024 series is now open for registration! If you register after the start date, you will be placed on the waitlist. Teachers on the waitlist will then receive an invitation to join us at the NEXT monthly gathering AND receive a link to view the recording of the sessions you have missed while you wait!
Each month we will review timely tasks that help keep gardens growing, as well as specific curricular connections, and practical management tips for teaching outdoors. Seasonal resources will be shared, and participants are encouraged to share their own success stories and challenges to broaden our collective expertise.
Guest speakers will join us to share their expertise teaching across the curriculum in school gardens. Each session is recorded so you can catch up at your convenience if our scheduled meetings don’t work for you.
We look forward to meeting you!
