Professional Development Workshops (PDW’s)

line break 4

Greater Newark Conservancy’s professional development workshops are designed to serve the needs of teachers, farm educators, public health professionals and those in related fields. We offer an array of lessons pertinent to sustainability and Farm to School programming.  Our pd’s lead the professional community in its commitment to hands-on, multidisciplinary, environmental awareness. These professional development workshops illustrate the experiential aspect of nature as well as help with the confidence to incorporate naturalist learning in your classroom using your existing curriculum.
