As a companion book to The Essential School Garden this innovative resource shows how the school garden can be fully utilised as a teaching resource across a range of learning areas. The sections provide detailed instructions for relevant garden-based activities and projects for both individual and group work.


It is structured around the evolution of gardens through:

·       design
·       construction
·       propagating and planting
·       growing and maintaining
·       harvesting and saving seeds

Participation will give students a grounded  knowledge of issues such as soil conservation, non-toxic  pest control and biological diversity. The resource also  gives guidance for the creative teaching in core subjects of mathematics, science and English language as well as  for creative expression. 
Teaching in outdoor settings has been found to enhance students’ learning focus and improve learning outcomes. A school garden offers teachers an almost endless possibilities for fruitful and satisfying teaching! 

This resource is part of our Greenfingers at School series. See also:
