Green Teacher Network has supported teachers’ efforts to create school gardens and use green spaces as multidisciplinary teaching tools, enhancing curricula for all students. Members of the network have access to informative teacher-training sessions and special events that champion the use of plant-based learning in Chicago-area schools.
Green Teacher Network is a partnership between Openlands, the Chicago Botanic Garden, and Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance.
We also now have our own Google group for members to receive information about upcoming workshops from the partner organizations as well as information about school gardening, grants, and more. Visit us on our Facebook page.
