The Learn, Grow, Eat and Go! initiative of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and its Junior Master Gardener program provides students with important life lessons in health and wellness through gardening, nutrition education and exercise. The training is focused toward third- and fourth-grade science teachers, said AgriLife Extension agent Matt Garrett, Harrison County. 

The program will be at Gold Hall Community Center, 101 E. Elm St. Cost is $15 with lunch included. Registration begins at 8:15 a.m., and the program ends at 4 p.m. RSVP to the AgriLife Extension office in Harrison County at 903-935-8413 for an accurate lunch count.

Six Texas Education Agency continuing education units for professional development will be available for attendees.

Garrett said the program will cover four curriculums that can be incorporated in science classrooms.

The program will include teacher education featuring a stream trailer to explain water conservation and the water cycle; hatching eggs in the classroom and instruction on how to utilize wildlife educational trunks within the teaching curriculum.

“The class will reinforce what teachers are doing in their classroom by giving them hands-on and practical experience on topics like water conservation and wildlife,” Garrett said.
