Register for DUG's Next Helping Kids Get Healthy Workshop!
Helping Kids Get Healthy: A Workshop Series for Youth Educators Offered by Denver Urban Gardens
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.
Plot Planning, Spring Planting & How Much?
Planning a garden with students is a great way to encourage creativity and enthusiasm for the upcoming growing season. In this workshop, we will explore best practices for planning and planting plots within school gardens. Participants will design and take home a personalized planting plan for their school garden.
To complement the garden planning activity, we'll visually explore how serving sizes impact nutrition information and how serving sizes relate to our physical activity. A healthy, kid-friendly snack will be provided.
