Thank you to the fantastic group of people from all over southern Colorado who attended MSTFP's Annual Training this year. The first training day focused on production topics, like optimizing the layout of your garden classroom or making any garden chore into a lesson. Day 2 shifted to cover methods for delivering experiential education, which included best practices in classroom management, lesson planning, and more. If you weren't able to make it this year, we hope to see you next time! 

Feel free to contact us if you'd like to bring a school garden training to your school or community! See below for more information about what this training involves and who its best suited for.

Montezuma School to Farm Project warmly invites:

PreSchool through 12th grade teachers, homeschool and non-traditional teachers, school garden educators, parents, community gardeners, and outdoor educators!

Join us for our annual school garden training in Mancos, CO.

This training is designed to benefit our staff (new and old); we are excited to welcome others doing similar work, or with similar goals, to participate as well! The information we will present during these two days reveals the nuts and bolts of how MSTFP operates and why. Our approach to curriculum and garden education is academic, but retains a focus on high yields by orienting classes around students’ involvement in the problem-solving and labor that food production requires. Throughout each day’s’ hands-on training sessions, participants will have opportunities to both receive and contribute insight. Please see the flyer for more information about the training and how to RSVP. We hope to see you there!
