Want to learn how to run a School Garden?

The Sustainable Food Center,  will be offering their School Garden Leadership Training again this fall, and registration is coming up soon ! Learn more and sign up below !

School Garden Leadership Training

Help foster a brighter, healthier future for children in Central Texas by teaching youth to grow their own food. We will teach you how to successfully start and sustain a school food garden. Topics covered include: organizing your garden team, planning and implementing your project, incorporating the garden into a curriculum, and fundraising. We won't be covering basic gardening principles, but can point you to a variety of resources on this topic (including our Citizen Gardener classes!). This workshop is for teachers, parents, and any community members looking to volunteer with school gardens.
Childcare and translation will be provided upon request.**
