Maine School Garden Days
We had a great turnout and beautiful weather for this event. The spectacular gardens at Troy Howard Middle school provided an excellent learning opportunity as teachers released benificial insects in the greenhouse, prepared food in the outdoor classroom and considered making the best use of space by building a vermicomposting system in the walkway of a hoop house. Teachers shared their successes and challenges, learned how to start a garden, incorporate the garden in their curriculum, and save seeds. Presentations by teachers awarded Maine Ag In The Classroom grants were inspiring and lead to thoughtful conversations among attendees. We thank all of our presenters, attendees and exhibitors. We are already looking forward to next year!
