Professional Development Workshops

Professional Development Workshops for Individual Schools or Educators' Groups

We will gladly work with your staff to develop a program tailored to support your professional development goals for science and other areas of study. Programs may include inquiry-based classroom explorations, guided tours of the Garden's indoor and outdoor plant collections, and hands-on "potting-up" horticultural activities.

Some suggested workshop topics include the following:

  • Kitchen Botany: Plants We Eat
  • Exploring Plant Adaptations
  • Sensory Learning in the Garden
  • Native New Yorkers: Exploring Native Plant Communities
  • Food and Social Justice
  • Agriculture and our Food System
  • Urban Environmental Sustainability
