On January 10, 2012 school garden teachers along with others were fortunate enough to listen to Jaimie Cloud present at the Amy Greenwell Garden in Captain Cook. Jaimie is a visionary leader in sustainable education. The Cloud Institute “prepares K-12 school systems and their communities to educate for a sustainable future by inspiring educators and engaging students through meaningful content and learner-centered instruction.”
Through discussion and exercises in sustainability participants learned valuable tactics in teaching sustainability to others. This was a wonderful presentation enhanced by the beauty of the Amy Greenwell Garden.
