Welcome to Life & Learning, a site dedicated to all school gardeners who are interested in offering food and fantastic experiential learning opportunities in any type of school setting. This blog welcomes all past, present and future school gardeners to share their experiences, thoughts and challenges in running a school garden program and/or farm-to-school initiative in their community.
To focus the discussion, the members of our middle school garden project will write articles, post interesting gardening tricks and short instructional videos for classroom use. If you have any interest in bio-dynamic gardening, experiential & place based learning, improving your connection with all students and believe that school improvement is based on character and intellectual development, then this may be the blog for you.
