Welcome to the Teacher Patch

The teacher patch grows a mix of learning resources and plant adventures to use in the classroom, outdoors or as homework activities; they are designed to complement a guided session at the Garden or are flexible to work with your own lesson plan. Currently growing in the teacher patch are two primary programmes which are free to access - select one of them below to start exploring!
