'I Can Grow' Guide
Educators: Request the Burpee Home Gardens 'I Can Grow' Guide for Cultivating a Successful Youth Garden Program
Burpee's 'I Can Grow' initiative focuses on Education, in addition to Eating better, Environmental stewardship and making Economical choices. As we launch a hands-on school/community gardens program this year, we're also helping educators across the country nurture their own programs.
In partnership with the National Gardening Association, we've developed the Burpee Home Gardens 'I Can Grow' Guide. Perfect for teachers, youth group leaders and volunteers, the 55-page guide provides everything for starting, maintaining and sustaining an edible garden for youth.
