Be Fearless and Play! Create a Permaculture Program for Public Elementary school

A talk by Becca Martin
Programming creator/teacher/large child, Becca Martin

Speaker expertise

Permaculture teacher for youth and adults with curriculum writing and program creation/implementation experience in public school settings. Private consultation and land management , not-for profit assistance with community based programs for low income and youth based projects, science based online education for youth and families with a focus on food security.


Are you interested in building community and food security while instilling a sense of wonder and hope? Would you like to enable children to gain tools and skills to better navigate the world? Integrated Permaculture gardening curriculums and programs provide opportunities for students , and by extension our expanded school community , to grow and produce food, better understand nutritional information, understand and support existing science and math curriculum, community and social connections/social studies , environmental awareness education and expanded People Care skills using hands on classes supported by actual gardening space and teacher /student participation throughout all phases . In my talk I will discuss my steps in the creation of a six year integrated program held at a local elementary school. From gathering stakeholder perspectives and collecting appropriate materials to full implementation of a curriculum appropriate to children ages 7-12 or grades 2-6. Seed to table learning is experiential in nature and can be packed with hands on games that create new synapse in the brain far quicker then other forms of learning. Be fearless and play in the garden for healthier minds.
