School Resource Guidebook

school resource guidebook

In 2008, The Garden Project started a school garden resource guide to provide area schools with tips and guidelines to starting a school garden, lesson plans, sample budgets, theme gardens and other helpful hints for school garden coordinators and teachers.  The resource guide, also identifies ways to incorporate existing curriculum standards into the garden.  A teacher/ garden coordinator was held in the spring of 2010 to release the guidebook as well as connect schools in the county with other food and garden resources.
