Engaging Youth in Urban Agriculture (workshop for educators)
This course is designed for adults working with children and includes innovative ways of engaging them in agriculture. The course addresses three age levels that include elementary, middle school youth and high school youth. All levels of participation include experiential activities for adults to share with youth that will keep them learning about agriculture and enjoying fun experiences as they learn. Participants will be invited to bring their own ideas and successful projects from their previous work experiences. Projects and ideas about engaging teens in a farmer’s market will also be brainstormed. The course includes a field trip to a local school garden.
