I am in phase II of a learning garden project I have started last year. Is there anyone else that has done, completed, or in the midst of doing a similar project for a public school. I have run into many drawbacks and would love to discuss this with all of you.
It has always been a passion of mine to teach children about nature and their natural environment. Last year I had a great turn out of families that helped build the first phase of the garden. It looks fabulous, but we have a lot of vandalism with our new baby trees.
Hi Again Rhonda,
Would you post this also on the Natural Teachers Network Group Site? We have a lot of folks who share on that site from all segments of the education community, from pre-schools to high schools. It is one of the most active Group Sites we have, with members from Australia to Scotland. The issue you ask about is very important to create that bridge between community and school, and to connect families with the natural world. We also have other Group Sites that you may want to post this on as well, including Family Nature Clubs and Children's Built Environment. Thanks for sharing this. John
