Growing our Future: Creating a Preschool Garden and Urban Sustainability Program
Master of Arts in Earth Literacy
Growing our Future is a description of my experiences while creating a school garden for a local cooperative preschool, as well as a guide for others hoping to design similar programs. In addition, | provide sample lessons geared toward teaching garden ecology and urban sustainability to preschoolers. My hope is that this paper can serve as both an inspiration for others who would like to take teaching out of the classroom and into nature— and as a rudimentary handbook for how to do so.
