Summer Garden Resources

This time of year is an exciting time of transition in the garden – spring crops are ready for harvest, and summer crops are ready to be planted! ┬áThe summer garden features exciting and delicious food, but it can be tricky to maintain a garden over the summer in a school setting. To make things as easy as possible, Big Green has developed a number of resources to help schools plant, grow, water, and harvest a variety of themed summer crops. Check out the resources below, including how-to videos, classroom tasting activities, lesson plans, and more. As always, if you have questions as you approach the summer season or would like additional support throughout the summer months, feel free to reach out to your Garden Educator!
