Chicago Spring Garden Resources

Spring is almost here, and with it the beginning of the growing season!  Starting the first week of April it will be time to get spring seeds in the ground, so you can plan for a first harvest with your students in May.  Big Green has a number of resources to make planning, planting, and harvesting with your students as easy as possible this spring.  Check out the resources below, including how-to videos, garden guides, schedule templates, classroom activities, and more.  As always, if you have questions as you approach the spring season or would like additional support, feel free to reach out to your Garden Educator!
