The PHS Green City Teachers program provides Philadelphia educators with the skills to integrate horticultural and environmental education into curricula, after-school programs, and service-learning projects. Teachers, individuals, parents, gardeners, and informal educators are invited to participate.
The fall five-session course offers a forum for sharing ideas and helps students appreciate the role of nature in their lives. Topics include basic horticulture, water, soil and composting, indoor gardening, and choosing the right plants. The summer two-day workshop focuses on building a school garden. Act 48 credit is available.
