At the October 10 meeting of CCMGA, the group was pleased to have Putnam County Extension Agent, Dr. Chuck Talbott, present an overview of his initiative on Garden Based Learning for schools. His projects have been very successful in improving student engagement, interest and overall achievement among students in several Putnam County elementary schools.
Dr. Talbott has become very knowledgeable in procedures and practices that make school gardens a success. Through the implementation of garden based learning in Putnam County, Dr. Talbott has learned what works and what to avoid. His knowledge and experience can serve as a great guide for schools or informal educators looking to bring gardening to the educational program.
Dr. Talbott has generously allowed our organization to make his resources available on our website. The link below will connect you to the presentations, handouts, guidelines, signs and other materials that he has developed or gathered over the years of supporting school gardens.
