Planting Planning Workshop

Want a refresher on best watering practices or how to keep weeds out? Not sure what plants and seeds to order? Need some ideas for engaging garden activities for your students? Then this is the workshop for you! SYG coordinators are encouraged to attend this  workshop to get planning and planting advice for their schoolyard gardens. We will help map out your garden beds and have time for you to brainstorm with other teachers on ways to connect your garden to your bigger goals. Offered in the spring and fall.

Digging Deeper Workshop

Whether your school hopes to add fresh produce to the cafeteria, integrate the garden into the classroom or involve neighborhood families, this training will help you achieve your school’s overarching goals. Offered in the spring only.

Seasonal Volunteer Workshop

This workshop goes over the basics of schoolyard gardening in Kansas City. We will share all you need to know to volunteer at a garden and we will match you to a school! There will be time to learn about different garden games and activities as well as learn the basics of watering, weeding and harvesting with students at schoolyard gardens. Offered in the spring and fall. Read more here: (link to volunteer contract position)

All workshop trainings have been approved through KDHE (Kansas Department of Health and Environment) and DHSS (MO Department of Health and Senior Services) for continued education clock hours for KS and MO educators.
