How to Grow a School Garden: A Complete Guide for Parents and Teachers

Arden Bucklin-Sporer and Rachel Kathleen Pringle

Categories: Curriculum , Gardening , Washington County Library

Resource Description

In this groundbreaking resource, two school garden pioneers offer parents, teachers, and school administrators everything they need to know to build school gardens and to develop the programs that support them. Today both schools and parents have a unique opportunity—and an increasing responsibility—to cultivate an awareness of our finite resources, to reinforce values of environmental stewardship, to help students understand concepts of nutrition and health, and to connect children to the natural world. What better way to do this than by engaging young people, their families, and teachers in the wondrous outdoor classroom that is their very own school garden?
