The goal: give teachers the content and lesson plans for their Science curriculum, all centered around gardening. Composting, soil types, soil testing and prep, seed starting – it’s all covered in class and during filed trips to the Lowe Park greenhouse and the Hiawatha School Gardens. Course content is appropriate for student is grades K-12.

The course is held on June 12-14 at the Linn County Extension Office, mornings and afternoons. This 15-hours course can count as one hour of re-licensure credit through the Grant Wood AEA.
