Why Farm to School Now? Using Gardens and Outdoor Spaces for Safe & Engaging Learning
August 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
In this session we will discuss the ways in which providing garden-based and outdoor learning experiences can help you safely welcome back your whole student population this fall and provide unique opportunities to support your students’ social and emotional learning after such a challenging year. Hear from school principals who have championed gardens in their schools, including Sheila McAdams, Ipswich Public Schools and Sarah Madden, Northampton Public Schools.
Learn best practices for designing engaging and impactful farm to school programs, upcoming professional development opportunities for teachers and other school staff, and how COVID-relief funds might be used to support these efforts.
This session is geared towards school administrators, however, all are welcome to participate.
