2018-19 Educator Workshops


Farm to Classroom

November 11, 2019 9am - November 12, 2019 4pm

Farm to Classroom

We will be learning to create Square foot gardens for your classroom. We can show you how to incorporate math, science, social studies, and more into a unit on agriculture. We believe that it is essential for our children of today to learn more about where their food comes from. You can help to make that happen in your classroom!

The cost of the workshop depends on the lodging you choose. This will include 4 meals, and all instruction!

Single hotel room - $150

Double hotel room - $100

Cabin (bring your own linens) - $65

What a great deal for a full two days of fun and learning! Our numbers are limited so register today!

ASTA Science Day Camp

Join us for a day of fun and learning at the McDowell Farm School and McDowell Environmental Center (MEC)! This will be a sampler... half a day exploring the canyon and streams of McDowell with the instructors of MEC and half a day on the Farm with our goats, chickens, and Waldo the pig.

The $35 fee includes lunch and the day camp is sponsored by ASTS (Alabama Science Teachers Association) so your fee covers a year long membership to ASTA as well.
