Mass Hort's School Garden Conference: Beyond Education 


Our third annual school garden conference will feature workshops that explore regional best practices for planning and running a garden that will not only meet educational goals, but also provide opportunities for a diverse student body, and make connections within the school community and beyond. 

A variety of workshops will support interested parents and volunteers, teachers and administrators—those who have established gardens and those just breaking ground. This year's conference will feature a Keynote Address by Jane Hirschi, Founding Director of CitySprouts and author of Ripe for Change: Garden-Based Learning in Schools. She will kick off the day with an inspiring lecture on the impact of school gardens.

Together, with your help, we hope to cultivate garden spaces
that will enrich every community!
