Thursday, February 22, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm – Mass Hort’s School Garden Conference: Growing for Experience


The Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s fourth annual School Garden Conference at Elm Bank, 900 Washington Street, Wellesley, on Thursday, February 22 (blizzard date February 23) will feature workshops that explore regional best practices for planning and running a garden that will not only meet educational goals, but also foster life skills.

Attending educators will develop practical gardening skills that will increase their confidence and ability to teach in and from a garden. Workshops will support interested parents and volunteers, teachers and administrators – those who have established gardens and those just breaking ground.

Cost ($40 Mass Hort members, $60 general admission) includes morning coffee and lunch. Pre-registration required at http://www.masshort.org/education-classes, or call 617-933-4973.
