Recipes for a Successful School Garden: A Guide for Parents and Teachers

Recipes for a Successful School Garden simplifies the process of planning and running an elementary school garden while following a year’s curriculum of a seasoned 20 year old school garden. The book highlights the successes and lessons learned and is a resource for parent volunteers and teachers looking to plan, garden, teach and cook outdoors in the garden. “School gardens are important for many reasonsinstilling a love of nature, re-connecting children to the source of their food, providing a meaningful and authentic teaching tool, and awakening children to the awe and wonder that exists in a garden. This is a wonderful resource that will hopefully result in more gardens for children.” – Emily Jackson, Growing Minds
