  • After-school training packages.

Districts can select teachers from certain schools, grade levels or subjects to learn how to use the garden to improve student performance.  For example, a district could choose to provide our training for all of the 5th grade science teachers, or all the math teachers in a particular area.  Our educators will tailor the training session to your particular needs and objectives, and will work within your existing garden or schoolyard.

Teachers who attend our trainings also receive our easy-to-use standards-based lesson plans.  Our expert educators will also share their strategies on how to effectively manage a class outside.  Teachers rave about the REAL School Gardens program.
