Recipes for a Successful School Garden : A Guide for Parents and Teachers - (Paperback)
about this item
The past decade has witnessed substantial growth in the number of school gardens in the United States. According to the 2015 USDA Farm to School Census, the percentage of public elementary schools with garden programs nearly tripled between 2006 and 2013. Many schools have become aware of the multiple health and academic benefits of school gardening for students, teachers, and communities.
Recipes for a Successful School Garden details the process of planning and running a school garden while following a year’s curriculum at Seth Boyden Demonstration School’s “Strawberry Fields Garden” in Maplewood, New Jersey. The activities included in the book represent the most successful (and fun!) lessons that co-author Maggie Tuohy has adapted during her fifteen years working in school gardens.
An essential resource for parents and teachers looking to establish, garden, teach and cook outdoors in their school garden, Recipes for A Successful School Garden is a book that every school garden should have in its tool shed.
