    3.

    4. The authors did a very thorough job of weaving together the logistics of setting up a school garden, a tutorial on garden basics and the tricks of adapting gardening for children so that it is educational and inspiring and fun A complete how to book with wonderful real life gardening stories.

    5. Full disclosure I am on the Board of Education Outside, an organization directed by Arden Bucklin Sporer Still, putting aside my allegiances, I think this is an EXCELLENT how to book for the school garden educator Plus it was useful in my own back yard garden.

    6. This book is a great resource, and I carry it with me to all of our school garden meetings The photos are inspiring, and the compilation of information is very valuable.I just don t think it is a complete guide It s a starting point In many cases I have had to do much research myself.

    7. Color picture guide for setting up garden curriculum Offers interesting ideas regarding weekly school wide curriculum plans I can imagine a world where the garden is an additional classroom.

    8. Using a practical and hands on approach, this book provides everything parents and teachers need to plan, build, use, and maintain a school garden Includes lesson plans, design ideas, and recipes.

    9. Great ideas, not that I can use all of them or that the book always pertains to my school, but I definitely have great ideas to start our school garden at work I m excited

    10. This was a great approach to starting a school garden, but it doesn t really cross over to an independent school very well.
