Welcome 2019-2020 Garden Docents!
Welcome to the GrowingGreat Online Garden Toolkit!
If you’re a brand new docent, or new to gardening, don’t worry. GrowingGreat will supply you with all of the tools and information you’ll need to implement a garden education program at your school, learn about these topics yourself, and teach this knowledge to your students. All of our garden lessons/activities align with Common Core (CC) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Throughout the year we will be adding STEM activities to the STEB Lab section of this toolkit. Feel free to use in between growing seasons!
There are many resources available to you in this online toolkit to help you along the way. Please watch the videos below and go through the sections on the left of this page in order to familiarize yourself with the online toolkit and your responsibilities before teaching your first lesson/activity. If you have any questions or concerns, please first contact your GrowingGreat Lead Docent. The GrowingGreat staff are also available to help and can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have suggestions about this online toolkit we’d be very grateful if you would send them to us. We will consider all of your comments as we continue to update and improve our training portal.
Thank you for your help and dedication to health and well-being. We hope that you and your students enjoy the GrowingGreat garden acitivities!
The GrowingGreat Team
