Gardening With Students During Covid-19:

Hear from 2 local teachers sharing how they continued garden-based learning virtually last spring and in-person this fall. Come with your Covid-19 related questions and concerns. There will be time for Q&A and general resource and idea sharing. Contact denise to get a Google Meet event link. We realize there are varying schedules across schools and school districts, so we will be recording this event.
