- Week One: Social emotional benefits of garden based learning with Gabrielle Principe, Psychology professor and department chair, College of Charleston. Author of Your Brain on Childhood
- Week Two: Academic benefits of garden-based learning with David Sobel, senior faculty in Education at Antioch University. Author of Childhood & Nature, Place Based Education, and Beyond Ecophobia
- Week Three: Environmental stewardship benefits of garden based learning with National Wildlife Federation naturalist, Dave Mizejewski
- Week Four: Nutrition and health benefits of garden based learning with Margie Saidel, RD MPH, Chartwells K-12 VP of Nutrition, Culinary & Sustainability
