Hands on, living classrooms for students, teachers and community volunteers in three Toronto school gardens
The Grow-to-Learn Schoolyard Gardens have a profound and positive impact on thousands of students, teachers, volunteers and community members each year, connecting them directly to the wonders of the natural world and environment.
There are so many benefits to working and learning in the gardens. Visit our Grow-to-Learn Schoolyard Garden page for more details.
Workshops are typically 30-45 minutes long, so teachers can bank on taking up about half a period with each workshop. Some workshops have additional follow-up exercises that teachers can use to extend the content of the workshop into further classroom discussion or culminating activities.
PACT Grow-to-Learn garden workshops are free-of-charge.
