Sowing Cemeteries and Seed Libraries: Inspiration from Shipley's Horticulture Program

Learn more about Shipley's Educational Horticulture program from Coordinator of Educational Horticulture and Associate Director of College Counseling, Sarah Sterling, on Wednesday, November 16, in a webinar presented by the Florida Horticulture for Health Network.

About the Webinar:
Every school needs horticulture. But not every school needs a garden to have a thriving and therapeutic horticulture program. From grave gardening to flower show competitions, this session will spotlight The Shipley School’s unique approach to educational horticulture. Join the presenter on an exploration of Shipley’s most recent projects, but be prepared for book worms, lettuce bombs, and several instances of dumpster diving! Participants will leave with programming ideas to inspire and expand school-based horticulture at their institutions.
