Description

This book is ideal for educators who want to incorporate outdoor education at all levels of the school curriculum. It shows how to teach children about growing food and future sustainability.

It articulates the need for a revival of school gardens and offers a comprehensive and practical plan for developing a school garden.

"Outdoor Classrooms" is ideal for teachers and home educators who want to incorporate outdoor education at all levels of the school curriculum, with an emphasis on setting up vegetable gardens, teaching children about growing food, economic concerns, human and planetary health and future sustainability.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, "Outdoor Classrooms" is presented as two streams of thought.

Carolyn takes through the history of school gardens and articulates the need for a revival before leading our journey into the fanciful; a schoolyard to fire and child's imagination and delight in the natural world.

Janet then offers a comprehensive and practical plan for developing a school garden.
