Teacher Professional Development Courses

Fairchild offers professional development courses focusing on botany, ecology, and South Florida natural history, and are designed to increase teachers’ knowledge and understanding of the importance of plants, plant uses, and conservation efforts for the future. Workshops are conducted at the Garden using a combination of lectures, guided garden walks, and hands-on activities. Teachers are provided with materials and curriculum to implement in their classrooms.
Fairchild works with Miami-Dade County Public Schools and select courses are approved for master plan points.
