Green Teacher Network Charlotte is a nonprofit advancing health, sustainability, and academics through school gardens. We are the centralized gardening resource for educators by collaborating with over 25 area organizations that support school gardens. We currently maintain a network of over 1200 educators in 168 schools in the Charlotte area. Together we are redefining the school garden from a plot of dirt to a tool that can be integrated into a variety of subjects and provides hands on learning opportunities to today’s youth!
Curriculum Connection Matrix will align North Carolina education standards to garden based projects and lesson plans. This will allow our educators to integrate the garden into their more aspects of their curriculum and provide students with hands on learning opportunities.
