Back to School, Back to Eden

Just had our first day of garden teaching with the Britannia Home Ec 8, Bio 11, Outreach, and Streetfront Alternatives classes. Had students explore the garden with all their senses. The outdated standardized testing model is out and teachers now have greater flexibility in their curriculum with a focus on hands-on experience in collaboration, critical thinking, process, and communications and allowing increased space and time for students to develop their skills and explore their passions and interests, all that fits well with a garden focused experiential learning and experimentation.
