Join the VBGA’s upcoming online Teacher Pro-D Session where Growing Chefs Program Director, Amanda Adams, will lead a session on growing edible plants in the classroom and explore how to use them in activities and learning opportunities for your students. Find out what to grow (and what not to grow), how to and what you'll need to set up a classroom garden, how to troubleshoot indoor container gardens, and share some fun, out-of-the-box ideas for engaging students in growing their own food. Gardening can be an adventure in trial and error and we will leave plenty of time for group discussion so be sure to come with your garden questions.

Growing Chefs is on a mission to connect chefs, kids, and communities to foster systemic change towards healthy, sustainable, just food practices. Through their Classroom Gardening and Cooking Program, they introduce students to the whole food cycle - from seed to plate to compost using interactive, hands-on learning to give students the skills and knowledge to make healthy food choices for themselves, their communities, and the environment.
