The UC Davis School Gardening Program has developed great resources for adults involved in developing and using school gardens in California. 

Creating and Sustaining your School Garden (CSYSG)

We worked with our partners at LifeLab Science Program and the Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County to develop and deliver the CSYSG workshops with funding from California Department of Food and Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.  We continue to make all workshop materials available to the public. 

CSYSG Workshop Materials

Full Booklet (3.5 MB PDF)

Individual activities and lessons

Outdoor Classroom Management

Soil and Planting

Curricular Connections
