Nathan K. Larson

“With vision, commitment, and some good hard work, educators and families around the globe are ripping up pavement, sowing seeds, and growing garden classrooms because they believe children need to be engaged by hands-on learning in a context that matters to them. In Teaching in Nature’s Classroom: Principles of Garden-Based Education, Nathan Larson shares a philosophy of teaching in the garden. Rooted in years of experience and supported by research, he presents fifteen guiding principles of garden-based education. These principles and best practices are illustrated through engaging stories from the field.” Download a free e-book or order a paperback copy here.
