This fall, the San Francisco Green Schoolyard Alliance will be hosting its 4th Growing Greener School Grounds Conference on Friday, September 24th and Saturday the 25th.
This year's conference will bring together over 300 K-12 teachers and community members from the Bay Area and beyond to learn more about creating and sustaining vibrant outdoor learning environments.
The 2010 Growing Greener School Grounds Conference will begin with a Friday evening event featuring a keynote speaker, a networking and resource fair, with opportunities for local green schoolyards to showcase their existing work. On Saturday, conference participants will have the opportunity to select one full-day or two half-day, hands-on workshops from a wide variety of schoolyard greening topics. The workshops will be designed to enhance the grounds of the schools that host them, while teaching the participants valuable skills that they can put to use at their own schools. Workshop topics will include things such as:
• designing, building and maintaining school gardens
• organic vegetable gardening;
• successful fundraising and advocacy for your school garden;
• best horticultural practices for schoolyards;
• designing and installing schoolyard artwork;
• planting, harvesting and cooking with garden produce;
• connecting vibrant outdoor classrooms to state curriculum frameworks;
• and many more!
