Empower teens to be local leaders by making your school or community a healthier place. Take on Smithsonian Gardens’ Green Ambassador Challenge and introduce students to project-based learning in the real world, one garden at a time.
The challenge features two different tracks – Design a Green Space or Interview a Gardener – designed as adaptable lesson units aligned with national education standards. Available teacher packets also include tips for short-term and long-term student engagement using resources found in the Community of Gardens digital archive.
Explore the challenge and other resources for teachers and schools on the Community of Gardens Education page.
