The Garden Docent program strives to engage our children’s minds through a hands-on experience by enjoying the touch, sights, sounds, and smells that a garden offers. Participating classes meet with their docents 4 times a year to plant, harvest and/or maintain their classroom garden bed.
We need 3 docents per class to help teach 4 lessons a year (fall harvest, winter planting, spring harvest, summer planting). The children love being outside and learning about plants, soil, pollination, and more! Lesson plans and most materials are provided, reimbursements for extra materials are available. No gardening experience required, but you must have a background check and current TB test. You will work with your teacher’s schedule and plan dates/times that are best for them. Help make the garden come alive for the kids!
