With new programs like USDA Farm to School, Edible Schoolyard Projects, REAL School Gardens, and many others bringing gardening to school campuses, the need for knowledge of applying IPM principles to these gardens as required by Texas state law is very important. This course will teach learners to be able to explain how IPM principles apply to school gardens, differentiate between harmful and beneficial insects, implement a school garden IPM plan, and solve pest problems in the school garden by applying IPM practices.
District School IPM Coordinators can use this module as part of their district-wide education plan. This course is offered to School IPM Coordinators and teachers for 1 hour of certificate credit.
