How to Grow Food With Kids: Edible Gardening in Schools from Theory to Practice


Do you want to start a beautiful school garden this year?  Perhaps you want to expand your school garden to a more impressive one? Maybe you want to teach edible gardening to your students inside the classroom?  In any of these cases, this workshop is for you and this is the perfect time of year to attend!

Leila Mireskandari, an edible gardening educator, will show you real cases, share with you her experience, guide you through some do’s and don’ts, and tell you what to pay attention to and what to spend your time on.  Learn how to plan, what to do, when and how, so that you spend the least amount of time on your garden, in the most productive way, and still get excellent results. You will receive the basic knowledge and will be directed to the best resources to achieve your edible gardening goals in your classrooms, all in only three hours!
