Summer course for teachers

The Year Round Organic School Garden

This course demonstrates how to plan and create an organic school garden. It shows
how to develop various habitats and increase biodiversity in the school grounds.
We will visit an established school garden, and also audit, plan and design a garden
for a new location. We will look at the cross curricular potential that a school garden
offers and how it integrates with SESE, SPHE, Art, Languages, History and Maths.
This is a fun, practical, hands-on course that includes.
  • Garden plan and design
  • Seed sowing and plant care
  • Soil care and, natural fertilisers
  • Natural pest and diseases control
  • Making raised beds
  • Plant identification
This course will benefit any school wishing to attain their biodiversity green flag.
