Nature Works Everywhere Gardens Activity Guide: Community

Students plan, create and participate in an outreach event to share some of the benefits of their school garden — educational, experiential, and material — with others in your community. Students gather data to evaluate the impact of their event, and use this data to develop ideas for increasing community engagement and multiplying the effect of their school garden. Students plan and execute a campaign to address a need, issue, or problem they have discovered in their community.

Nature Works Everywhere: Urban Trees

Students will learn about how trees are an essential part of our lives with a focus on the role they play in urban areas, including energy considerations.  They then consider threats posed to trees, including non-native insects, domestic animal waste, and erosion.  Students then evaluate the potential impact of local tree conservation efforts and design a plan for their community.
