FAQs FOR SCHOOLS/TEACHERS

How can my school take part in the PACT Grow-to-Learn Schoolyard Gardening Program?

E-mail gtlworkshops@pactprogram.ca to set up a date and time for a PACT Garden coordinator to deliver your class workshop, field trip or garden tour.

How long are the workshops?

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.
