FREE Landscape for Life™ ‘Train the Trainer’ Webinar Series Starts April 30th 2013
The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and the United States Botanic Garden are calling for applications for the new Landscape for Life™ ‘Train the Trainer’ webinar series offered free of charge in 2013. Bring Landscape for Life to your community by becoming an official trainer. Ideal for botanic garden and horticulture educators, master gardeners, master naturalists, garden clubs and those interested in teaching sustainable gardening practices.
The series of five, two-hour webinars offers helpful teaching tips and tools that show you how to effectively utilize the instructor’s manual to deliver this valuable information to your target audience. The manual is a complete teaching toolbox that comes with ready to go presentations that make the Landscape for Life classes convenient to offer in your area.
Please note all participants should already possess sufficient gardening/horticulture background knowledge and experience as the training is not a “how-to” covering specific program content. We expect trainers to teach the Landscape for Life classes within one year of completing the training.
The webinar series is a unique opportunity that provides the following benefits:
- Talk with the author of the curriculum
- Engage in an open dialogue with like-minded educators and colleagues
- Become better equipped to explore relevant topics of landscape sustainability with homeowners
- Get access to additional instructor resources pertaining to landscape sustainability
- Gain hands-on experience through topical homework assignments
The LFL curriculum is intended to be taught as a holistic educational program. The five classes should be taught together in a series as each class and homework assignment builds on the other resulting in a clear and integrated understanding of sustainable gardening principles and techniques. Please see our curriculum webage to download and review the curriculum materials.
