‘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.
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.
