Eco-topia 2012 highlights
School gardens with Leonie Shanahan
Leonie’s session gives an overview of the different schools she have been involved in and how she runs the edible school gardens program. She talks about how to get started — who are going to be the support team, what works and what doesn’t, how to transform that piece of dirt into a vibrant healthy edible garden. The language you might use to get kids attention. How to source materials. Different types of gardens to create, growing food for health, and gardening towards sustainability.
Leonie also looks at games to play to reinforce the learning in the garden and to make our sessions a fun place.
