Do your students know where their food comes from? Or what it takes to go from tiny seed to tomato on the table? Would you like to help raise interest in sustainability and healthy living? Learn about starting a school garden, even with your youngest children, and explore some of the many ways the experience can be incorporated into learning both indoors and outdoors, from the garden to the cafeteria to center stage! Enthusiastic but nervous about taking on a garden project alone? Learn about a local non-profit that may be able to help you get started and discover options for accessing support from abroad. Time will be allotted for participants to brainstorm how the growing experience could be relevant to their schools and classrooms.

Participants will learn about the presenter’s experiences and challenges in leading the development of a school garden in the Early Years at International School of Stuttgart.
Participants will learn about how the garden project has impacted a much larger portion of the school community than just the Early Years program.
Participants will explore ways to incorporate a school garden, or even a small growing area, into their classroom, curriculum, and school.
Participants will learn about national and international agency resources that may be able to support the development of a school garden.
