Due to popular demand, The Year Round Organic School Garden book has been updated and reprinted, it is now available through our online shop and from our on- site shop at ISSA.
‘The Year-Round Organic School Garden’ is a practical guide for teachers and other education practitioners who wish to bring nature, native habitats and biodiversity into the school grounds.
It aims to help with the planning, design, creation and use of an organic school garden with and for students. It demonstrates the huge possibilities of designing and developing the school grounds into a highly stimulating and interactive educational resource with organic food production and biodiversity protection and development as its central theme.
An organic school garden is a practical and positive response to current environmental issues like climate breakdown, habitat and biodiversity loss while simultaneously supporting the students wellbeing.
It can be used to explore sustainable development education and nature based activities, and encourages active learning. By bringing lessons about biodiversity and food production into the heart of the school system it is ‘Think Global, Act Local’ in action.
It has unlimited cross-curricular potential. It particularly ties in with Social, Environmental and Scientific Education (SESE; science/geography), Social, Personal and Health Education (SPHE), Wellbeing, Art, Languages, History and Maths.
It sets out practical projects on growing local food, creating biodiversity and native habitats in the school grounds, encourages healthy eating, nature-based activities and getting students active.
