Sustainable Professional Development Framework for Your SGSO

November 16, 2022

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Location: Online

Learn about a replicable framework for a professional development series designed to help school garden educators build gardening confidence, foster collaboration among leaders, and strengthen garden programs for long-term success. Florida Agriculture in the Classroom will share their experience collaborating with SNAP-Ed and University Extension to co-host monthly interactive webinars. Externally this series supports educators while organically building a statewide school garden network. Internally the series fosters partnerships with other SGSO’s through shared labor and scalable leadership opportunities. This workshop will begin with a brief history then dive into the tools, marketing strategies, and content framework used by the organizers. Participants will engage in fun activities from the series’ 3 Spheres of Sustainability: gardening knowledge, curriculum connections, and leadership skills.
