Fall Garden Resources

The back-to-school season is an exciting time of transition in the garden — summer crops, like sweet potatoes, are ready for harvest, and fall crops are ready to be planted!  Many of the veggies in your summer garden can be used to make a wide variety of delicious recipes, like the grain bowls we featured at our Back To School Workshop. If you won’t be using your veggies in the classroom or the cafeteria, you can use all of those veggies to host a school farm stand!

We recognize that it can be tricky to plant and harvest from your garden when school is just starting back up. So to make the process as easy as possible, Big Green has developed a number of resources to help schools plant, grow, water, and harvest all of their fall garden crops. Check out the resources below, including how-to videos, classroom tasting activities, lesson plans, and more. As always, if you have questions about your fall garden or would like additional support throughout the next few months, feel free to reach out to your Garden Educator!
