Teaching in Nature`s Classroom
In Teaching in Nature’s Classroom: Core Principles of Garden-Based Education, Nathan Larson shares a philosophy of teaching in the garden. Rooted in years of experience and supported by research, Larson presents fifteen guiding principles of garden-based education. These principles and best practices are illustrated through engaging stories from the field. The book features vivid paintings by mural artist Becky Redelings and connections to the research literature provided by Alex Wells and Sam Dennis of the University of Wisconsin Environmental Design Lab. This publication was supported through a partnership between Community GroundWorks and the Environmental Design Lab at the University of Wisconsin -Madison. Funding for this project was provided by the Wisconsin Partnership Program at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
