I have been given the task of teaching a greenhouse/horticulture class next semester, which starts next week!! Since the beginning of this school year, I have searching for resources and such but I have yet to find a good curriculum or unit plan.  I have never grown anything in my life and I am really nervous to screw this up, as it is a big event for our school when we sell all the plants to the community in May.  I have been given no guidance or standards or anything.  All I have to go off of is the materials the last teacher purchased last year.  I made that purchase, which was a ton of soil, mulch, sticks for labeling, seeds, containers to grow in, etc.  As a science teacher, I want to incorporate some labs, research, etc.  I just don't know where to start or how to run the class effectively and smoothly.  Any ideas, resources, suggestions, etc would be amazing!!
