These unique workshops are designed for teachers and volunteers who work in youth education programs that focus on nutrition and gardening. Join DUG’s Education Team to learn different ways to use your school garden and how to teach hands-on lessons in organic gardening and nutrition. Workshops are offered seasonally and each workshop highlights unique, seasonally-appropriate lessons from DUG's School Garden and Nutrition Curriculum. Each workshop includes a garden-related lesson, a nutrition lesson and a snack component.
Since 2004, Denver Urban Gardens and the Colorado School of Public Health have worked together, through the Gardens for Growing Healthy Communities (GGHC) community-based research initiative, to explore how gardens, as neighborhood places, support healthy living. In short, the results of this research partnership have shown what community gardeners have known all along- that community gardens are good for neighborhoods!
