HIGH SCHOOL GARDEN WORKSHOPS

*Currently, all garden curriculum workshops take place in our David Wilson Memorial Garden at John Polanyi CI school garden, 640 Lawrence Ave West (at Allen Rd.) & Thistletown CI garden (at Islington)

All PACT Grow-to-Learn garden workshop outlines are flexible. We work directly with teachers to tailor and create a curriculum that works in conjunction with the class and students.

To get your school involved in the PACT Grow-to-Learn Schoolyard Gardens, email gtlworkshops@pactprogram.ca to set up a date and time for a PACT Garden coordinator to deliver the workshop.

FAQs FOR SCHOOLS/TEACHERS

How can my school take part in the PACT Hands-on/In-Garden Workshops?

E-mail gtlworkshops@pactprogram.ca to set up a date and time for a PACT Garden coordinator to deliver the workshop.

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.

Each school associated with a PACT Grow-to-Learn garden will also receive a binder with all the workshop outlines, which can be kept in the staff room or the office for offline reference.

Are the workshops free?

PACT Grow-to-Learn garden workshops are free-of-charge.
