Program Work Teams

PWT’s are groups of faculty and staff, extension educators, and external stakeholders who collaborate to identify issues, study needs, and create educational materials. Team members design learning experiences that address issues and needs within specific content areas. There are many program work teams. Cornell Garden-Based Learning is the campus co-chair for the Sustainable Landscape – Horticulture Program Work Team.

Sustainable Landscape – Horticulture PWT  fosters collaboration and communication among the CCE county and campus network of educators and program leaders to promote research-based educational approaches and environmental stewardship when creating, preserving and/or enhancing lawns, gardens and landscapes. This PWT hosts a number of activities for CCE county and campus educators and program leaders including the following:

  • CCE Horticulture Resource Sharing Library in Cornell Box (CCE staff contact Ashley Helmholdt for your access)
