About

Lead a weekly garden class during the school year. Each Garden Leader is paired with a teacher and class at Becker Elementary. The Garden Leader prepares and leads garden class activities. The teacher and a garden assistant are present and assist the Garden Leader. Grade-level teams offer support and ideas to Garden Leaders. An orientation session and on-line resources are also available to help volunteers plan projects and activities.

Examples of themes range from preparing soil and planting seeds to transplanting, harvesting and preparing fresh food while relevant scientific concepts are integrated along the way (e.g., germination, photosynthesis, soil composition).
