Open to professional and informal educators alike, GrowTeachKnox is dedicated to engaging students with nature and the outdoors. Local environmental, gardening, and education professionals will provide hands-on learning for educators to better integrate lessons in the classroom with nature.
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.
With principal approval, educators should be able to receive PD hours. Additional information or certificates available on request.
Breakfast and lunch are included with ticket price.
Please email email@example.com with dietary restrictions.
