The School Garden Doctor [Programs]

*The Dirt Girls

The Dirt Girls is an after-school program that engages participants in building and maintaining school gardens while investigating nature and exploring their science identities. Inspire Girls to Pursue Science Careers.

*Common Core Cooking

The Schol Garden Doctor brings the Common Core to life by integrating best practices for developing standards-aligned lessons for eating as learning. Based on a multisensory, multimodal, and multicultural approach: Eat-Read-Talk-Write, this classroom-tested pedagogical cycle extends to the school garden with suggested planting, growing, and harvesting activities.

*Youth Birding

Birdwatching for youth gardeners introduces students to basic birdwatching tips and promotes scientific habits of mind. Through observation and interaction with nature, students develop an understanding of the relationship between humans and the environment and develop a positive disposition as a novice birder.
