Growing Sustainable Children: Guide

Growing Sustainable Children: 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 multifaceted long- and short-term benefits that come with a gardening program for children.

Ronni Sands has been teaching gardening to children and adolescents for more than twenty-five years, and through her rich experience she has created the curriculum presented here, one that is also based on the picture of child development used in Waldorf schools. The curriculum builds on itself through the grades, adding new skills, concepts, and abilities year after year.
