What is Project Green Teacher?

Project Green Teacher is a school garden educational program for afterschool personnel, educators and others who are engaged in, or would like to learn more about gardening as a context for learning.

Grow your knowledge

Change your life and change the lives of the youth in your care through gardening. This three day series will increase your knowledge base, introduce you to resource personnel, offer networking opportunities, and increase your confidence as a garden educator. Research shows that gardening with youth has significant impacts, including better test scores, increased love of learning, greater nutrition awareness, and more. Help make educational gardening a solid part of the culture in central Ohio by learning best practices in gardening education as well as ways to educate, engage, and mentor others. Together we can grow school garden education in Ohio. 

Project Green Teacher is a program facilitated by Ohio State University 4-H personnel in Franklin County, in collaboration with the Central Ohio School Garden Advisory Committee comprised of area partners. This series is open to educators, afterschool personnel, and others in Central Ohio who would like to know more about school gardening.

The next Project Green Teacher Workshop will be held January 8-March 4, 2020.
