A Garden Learning Environment

April 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

While planting petunias on 6 inch centers, this seven-year-old student had one plant left over. She and I checked spacing and she discovered, “I have this one 9 inches away. It makes all the other ones 3 inches off.” Remembering is one thing, application is another.

Learning happens best when it is a natural part of the day. As I scan the garden and the classroom, this is what I see. Flower arranging, art, collaborative writing, chickens dusting visited by a guinea…all at work in response to garden opportunities.
