  1. Outdoor Classrooms

    By Janet Millington and Carolyn Nuttal

    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.”
