FACE TO FACE: How to Create a School Vegetable Garden

FACE TO FACE: How to Create a School Vegetable Garden

This course will run Face to Face should Covid Restrictions allow at the time.

This course is designed to enable teachers to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to organise, develop and implement a school garden. Participants will develop the skills necessary to assess a site for the establishment of a school garden, develop a veg calendar and cultivate a range of vegetables. Emphasis will be put on developing a garden as an educational resource and managing a garden within the constraints of the academic year. The course will enable the participants to plan and implement school gardens to be used as a practical teaching resource for schools. A garden can be used to support a wide range of learning objectives within the primary curriculum. This course was very well received last year for our Summer Course Programme.

Richard Mee has 22 years varied teaching and training experience in horticulture.

Teachers who attend the full 20-hour summer course will qualify for 3 extra Personal vacation days
