Spring Harvest and Summer Planting Resources

Spring harvests and summer plantings are right around the corner!  Over the next few weeks, we’ll be planting, watering, and harvesting with students. Many Indianapolis Learning Gardens will be harvesting from Spring Gardens on their own as well.  To make things as easy as possible, Big Green has developed a number of resources to help schools organize, prepare for, and lead garden activities this season.  Check out the resources below, including how-to videos, schedule templates, classroom activities, lesson plans, and more.  As always, if you have questions as you approach the upcoming planting and harvests or would like additional support, feel free to reach out to your Garden Educator!
