After Christmas, checking out these lesson planning resources

Try the Green Thumb Challenge for ideas that might work for you.Where can you find resources on a variety of greening topics for school use in one place? The Green Education Foundation has several green challenges with lessons and activities to support the objectives. I didn’t do much with Earth Week last year, and hope to remedy it this year. We’ll look into the Green Thumb Challenge. Other topic choices include sustainable water, bike riding instead of cars, green energy and waste reduction. http://www.greeneducationfoundation.org/2011-09-26-04-27-14/member-overview.html

Learning from Granny’s Garden School

Learning from Granny’s Garden School

As I looked online for information on the Herb Society of America’s grant program for educators, I saw last year’s awesome winner, Granny’s Garden School in Loveland, OH. What an inspiring story, I thought, to begin my New Year with a bumper crop of gardening elective students — so many I’m not sure how I’m going to teach them. Take in the school’s history, for a positive start in 2013.
