School Gardening Conference: February 3-4, 2017
There is a growing and vibrant school gardening community across the province, both in- and outdoor, collectively strengthening the relationships students have with agriculture, gardening, food, composting, and environmental stewardship. Educators are discovering school gardens as a means of strengthening academic, personal and social skills, while building curiosity, communication and character.
Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC-SK) is proud to offer opportunities for educators to gather and share how the garden-based education has come alive in their learning communities. Whether you are a beginner or a garden veteran, join us in February to learn and share innovative strategies for engaging diverse learners through garden-based education.
