Outdoor Classrooms

A Handbook for School Gardens

by Janet Millington, Carolyn Nuttal

Ideal for teachers and home educators wanting to incorporate edible gardens, growing food, permaculture and sustainability into children’s education.

Outdoor Classrooms: A Handbook for School Gardens is ideal for teachers and home educators who want to incorporate education at all levels of the school curriculum with an emphasis on:

  • Setting up edible gardens
  • teaching children about growing food
  • food security and economics
  • human and planetary health
  • permaculture and sustainability.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, Outdoor Classrooms is presented as two streams of thought: Carolyn takes us through the history of school gardens and articulates the need for a revival before leading us on an enticing journey of the imagination into the schoolyard and delight in the natural world.

Janet then offers a comprehensive and practical plan for developing “a successful, supported school garden that has the potential to benefit an entire community.”
