Workshops for Educators

Gardening with youth, particularly in a school garden, comes with its own set of rewards and challenges. Gateway Greening hosts an ongoing educator-focused workshop series with topics ranging from summer maintenance strategies to citizen-science garden topics. Many workshops include free garden resources or lesson plans.  Workshops are open to anyone interested in youth or school gardening. St. Louis Public School teachers receive continuing education credit for Gateway Greening Educator Workshops. Talk to your district about earning CE credit for Gateway Greening classes.

Gateway Greening also hosts St. Louis Public School professional development workshops and in-school teacher workshops on school gardening basics and the Seed to STEM curriculum. To learn more about school garden workshops for your school or district, contact the School Programs Manager.

Many classes have limited space. Please register for a class by filling out the form below.

Gateway Greening’s Workshops for Educators is financed in part through an allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the City of St. Louis’ Community Development Administration.
