The Victorian Schools Garden Program is supported by a calendar of professional development workshops that educate and encourage educators, parents and volunteers with an interest in school garden programs, sustainability and nature based education, the basics of school gardens and engaging our children.
These workshops are designed to help schools introduce or expand their school garden program. Participants are provided skills, knowledge and expertise to manage and increase the success of vegie and other gardens, as well as exploring ways to implement outdoor learning into their curriculum. Workshops allow participants to meet experts, seeing a successful school garden in action and met like minded teachers/parents.
