Thoughts on garden-based education

On this very chilly morning, we were delighted to wake up to an Education Week article that has us thinking spring! Jane Hirschi, founding director of City Sprouts, shares her thoughts on the special learning opportunities that a school garden provides.


We were struck by the question: "Is garden-based learning a critical educational resource all students need, as important to children's education as computer labs and libraries?"
Based on what we have seen in Somerville's school gardens, we think the answer is YES!
