School Gardening Conference - SOLD OUT

 

Feb 3 & 4, 2017

Saskatoon, SK

** Due to tremendous interest we have sold out of seats to the conference. Please email us at programs@aitc.sk.ca to be added to the waitlist **

There is a growing and vibrant school gardening community across the province, collectively strengthening the relationships students have with agriculture, gardening, food, composting, and environmental stewardship. Educators across our province are discovering school gardens as a means of improving academic achievement, promoting healthy nutrition, demonstrating the principles of stewardship, and building curiosity, communication and character.  School gardens, whether in- or outdoor, offer an incomparable atmosphere for hands-on learning activities that strengthen academic, personal and social skills. 

AITC-SK is proud to offer opportunities for educators to gather and share how the garden-based education has come alive in their learning communities. Whether you are a beginner or a garden veteran, join us in February to learn and share innovative strategies for engaging diverse learners through garden-based education.
