GrowTeachKnox Fall 2019

September 14 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

Open to professional and informal educators alike, GrowTeachKnox is dedicated to equipping educators to engage their students with the outdoors.

Local environmental, gardening, and education professionals will provide hands-on learning for educators to better integrate lessons in the classroom with nature. With topics from how to find funding to options beyond raised beds, educators will leave the day with the confidence to take their students outside, allowing students to more tangibly connect what they are learning to what they see in the wider world.

Tickets are limited so get yours today!
