About this Event

Learn to lead students through gardening tasks more effectively. Our staff will demonstrate the structures and systems we use to plant, tend crops, harvest and cook with budding gardeners. We will focus on strategies that improve accessibility and allow for many students to engage in garden work.

Please note that this workshop is for adults and educators who work with youth.  If you would like to bring your children to the farm for activities, check out one of our Family Farm Volunteer Days or Farm Tours for Kids.
