Growing Sustainable ChildrenRonni Sands and Willow Summer
A Garden Teacher's Guide
Gardening with children is hands-on outdoor education at its finest. With abundant opportunities for experiential learning, the garden is, in many ways, an ideal classroom, and an increasing number of educational initiatives are recognizing the many long- and short-term benefits that come with a gardening program for children.
Growing Sustainable Children is an indispensable resource for anyone already teaching in a gardening program, for those starting a program, or for anyone working with children in a garden or other outdoor setting as a homeschooler, community organizer, or friend of the earth.
The book includes a detailed age-appropriate curriculum and activity listings from nursery and kindergarten through high school, as well as a useful overview of the history of gardening education and the evolving consciousness of children.
