As many of you know, we’ve started a little video series with our education specialist Christine Gall called In the Weeds. Each month, Christine shares a favorite lesson plan from one of our curriculum books and does a quick demonstration. She also shares a few features about the book and what audience it might be most appropriate for.
If you haven’t seen any of our In the Weeds videos, I encourage you to check them out on our YouTube channel, or on our In the Weeds page on our website. We share the latest video in our newsletter, KidsGarden News, each month.
One common theme you may notice is that Christine always LOVES the book she’s showcasing. This is, in fact, true, and not just for the camera. We end up using a new copy of each book for each episode because Christine’s copies are so dog-eared and full of sticky notes. She’s a garden educator, and really uses all of these materials!
One thing you may not know is that we give away a copy of the featured curriculum each month. We run these promotions on Facebook and Instagram, so be sure to follow us there in order to be able to enter these giveaways if you’re interested in a particular curriculum book.
I would be really bad at my job as a marketing director if I didn’t also point out that all our curriculum books are for sale through Gardeners Supply Company.
Schools and educational institutions can receive a 25% discount off the regular retail price for items from Gardener’s Supply (discount cannot be applied on top of other discounts).

We hope you like watching In the Weeds as much as we like creating the content. Can I leave you with one of my favorite In the Weeds bloopers? Christine was extra-enthusiastic during a lesson on how seeds travel and got this burr stuck in her hair.
