Connecting Educators: Enhancing Learning
During COVID-19



STAYING CONNECTED: To Each Other & Green Industries


With spring comes new blooms and the opportunities to share the joys of Horticulture with friends, family, and students! A lot of things are being canceled but gardening isn't one of them! 

 One of our members suggested creating a call to connect horticulture educators for the purpose of support and idea-sharing as content moves online. This call will be specific to Green Industry teachers however all are welcome to join!

We will be having a Zoom call on Friday, April 3rd @ 11:00 am

Meeting ID: 306 408 4152
