We invite you to print and share the materials from each series. Please keep the pages in their original format.

Flash Cards – Children’s Curriculum
The Hope Seeds Children’s Gardening Curriculum consists of 24 lessons based on planning, planting, and harvesting a garden together. Each lesson begins with a simple gardening question which can generate discussion among your group. The basic answers are on page two (intended to be printed on the back-side of each lesson card) for the teacher’s benefit, and the information can be expanded on as the teacher feels necessary. Some cards also include activity sheets.
