The staff at the University of Hawaii's Urban Garden Center on Oahu had become overburdened with the recent opening of the Children's Garden for tours. In the first 8 months, over 1,700 children participated in tours of the garden. To release pressure on the staff, volunteers need to be trained to lead the tours. A docent manual was developed for these volunteers (docents) as a training guide. It was developed with materials and ideas from the Urban Garden Center, US Forest Service publications, Ranger Rick's Trees are Terrific!, and several other publications.
