Andrea’s love nature, and quest for sustainability, has led her to a path of teaching, by bringing both nature into schools, and students out of the classroom. The integration of her love of nature and science in the classroom culminated with her Master’s thesis; “How organic gardens can create a greater sense of community in public schools.” She is currently completing her dissertation on the topic of, “Sacred Groves and Traditional Environmental Knowledge” fusing both environmental ethics, and spiritual beliefs.
Hi Andrea, Warm welcome to C&NN Connect. I'm the forum host. I'm glad you found us and hope you make yourself at home in discussions and groups. Our Natural Teachers Network and our Bay Area group will probably interest you, among others. There is some discussion about school gardens in the NTN group. I hope you'll share your activities, ideas and photos with us and find this a rich source of resources. For any questions about the network, see our FAQ page. Hope to see you here again soon.
