Each class will be scheduled for a minimum 20-minute time slot in the garden for students to participate in various activities pertaining to gardening and plant science. Please feel free to stay as long as you would like.

Grade level lessons and materials will be available in the garden shed starting the first week of May. A copy of the lesson can be emailed ahead at your request.

Classes are encouraged to come out at the teacher's convenience. If help is required, feel free to contact me and schedule a time to meet in the garden.
