Over the years, Cultivating Community has had the opportunity to collaborate with many teachers around the country and to be part of a large “hive mind” generating garden-based lesson plans for elementary school students.
Below is a curated set of lesson plans for elementary school teachers who work in Maine or other northern climes and who want to offer garden-based education in the spring, fall and winter. Please enjoy using the lesson plans and contact us with any questions.
