  • Dig Your Hands in the Dirt

    Dig Your Hands in the Dirt

    By Kiko Denzer

    • Turn the earth under your feet into natural, cheap, beautiful art: African-inspired murals, fanciful playground sculptures, labyrinths, sundials, sculpted benches, bird houses, & more
    • Complete illustrated how-to guide to mud, art, & community
    • Inspiring stories & color photos from earth-artists here & abroad

    For teachers, parents, activists, builders, artists, & other kids. Here is inspiration and instruction for anyone interested in making beautiful art out of earth. The author of Build Your Own Earth Oven teaches you to find, mix, and sculpt the right mud; develop group goals and vision, and translate simple, natural (and easy to draw) patterns into sophisticated and complex designs. The resulting murals will transform anonymous "spaces" into real places. Or make "garden art" you can sit on (or in). Get inspirated by earth artists across the country and over the sea. Extensive resources for further study. Join them all in making art to help "join us, harmoniously, to a whole." Brief, elegant, wonderfully and generously illustrated with drawings and 32 pages of color photos.

    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.”
