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.
Seed Starting in the Classroom & Easy Ways to 5-A-Day
It may still be cold outside, but in fact it's time to start seedlings for the upcoming growing season. In this workshop we will guide you through the seed starting process in the context of a classroom, teach best practices and provide instructions for building your own grow lab. We will model a lesson that introduces students to seeds and also includes a planting activity.
The complementary nutrition activity for this workshop encourages students to explore new ways to add fruits and vegetables to the meals that they are already accustomed to eating. A healthy, kid-friendly snack will be provided.
