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. 

Would love to start the discussion.

Hi Rhonda! I am a special education teacher in a public school in Costa Rica. We have created a program for teaching our students with mental retardation in our sensory gardens. I just signed up in this space and find fantastic information available for me! I wish I had a lot of time to take a look at the blogs and sites other members have recomended for you. I know Ill do it, a litle by little. I would love to invite you to my blog. You can see a lot of our work by simply looking at the pictures we included. I am willing to establish communication with other teachers, like you, because we have shared the same dream of bringing children the opprtunities to learn in the outside. I hope we keep in touch!
