Generation Earth Summer Institute Community Resource Fair

Thursday, August 3, 2:00pm-3:00pm:

Generation Earth would like to invite you to share your program, curriculum & materials at our 12th annual Summer Institute Community Resource Fair on August 3, 2017 from 2:00 pm until 3:00 pm at the Environmental Learning Center at Hyperion – 12000 Vista Del Mar, Playa Del Rey, CA 90293.

Providers should aim to arrive from 1:00 pm onwards and be setup and ready by 1:45pm.

This year we have a great batch of middle and high school teachers from across Los Angeles County attending. These teachers often represent several other teachers at their schools who were unable to make it so rest assured your program will be shared with hundreds of LA area teachers.

This is THE BEST opportunity to connect with teachers who will actually utilize your programs. We consistently receive feedback from providers telling us that this is the most important and successful outreach event of the year for them. The Community Resource Fair is the culmination of Generation Earth’s two day “Environmental Service Learning 101” training. By the second day (8/3) they are hungry for great resources and field trip destinations, and are ready to network with you!

We already have a waiting list for this event and you can expect a minimum of 50 teachers to visit your table.

Green Teacher Webinar

September 27, 2017 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

To overcome the challenges and be successful, you need to keep a few basic principles in mind. Doing so will add to the overall sustainability of a garden and allow for the school community to participate in the project. Based on several years of research and experience with dozens of school gardens, Mary and her colleagues will share their list of basic steps and best practices for school gardens.

Mary Dudley is the Youth Education Coordinator at the Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati in Ohio. She has worked with school garden initiatives since 2008 in both temperate and subtropical climates. Mary holds a Master’s Degree in Botany. Covering the same ground as this webinar, Green Teacher published an article by Mary in Green Teacher 109, the Fall 2016 issue.
