Purdue Extension-Nature of Teaching presents workshops focusing on the benefits of connecting children with nature and lessons sharing management of food waste. By attending a workshop, teachers will develop the tools in order to enact this connection within their students. Teachers will also earn eight Professional Growth Plan points, can receive a $150 stipend if they integrate our lessons into their classroom and receive a binder with 15 to 20 lesson plans and participate in hands-on outdoor learning activities.
