What Did a Plant Ever Do for You?

What Did a Plant Ever Do for You?
3 "P" Credit Course*
This course provides an introduction to the science and art of botany and horticulture, taught online, using plants and gardens both at Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) and in the community. An understanding of the value of plants in natural and human history will complement an inquiry-based approach to learning how plants are built, how they work, and how they interact with the living and nonliving components of the diverse environments they inhabit. Fee includes curriculum materials, reproducible handouts, plants, potting-up supplies, and access to the Garden once it reopens.

*3 "P" credits available for an additional $125 fee through NYC DOE's After School Professional Development Program. You must register both for the class through BBG and for the credit through ASPDP.
