All for National Gardening Week on Mustard TV. Video Rating: / 5 Start the school year with a mission to get your students outside. What better way than with a garden! School gardens provide the context for lessons across subjects and offer a wonderful opportunity to engage students in hands-on, project-based learning. Students who engage in school gardening are likely to experience academic, physical, emotional, social, and even behavioral benefits. School gardens not only benefit students, but they can also benefit birds! In this webinar, educators will: – Learn the key steps to setting up and maintaining successful school gardens. – Discover how simple changes and additions can make a garden more bird friendly. – Address several challenges school gardeners may face. – Learn about the BirdSleuth Garden Grant application process.
