School gardening-you can do it!

For a while I have wanted to make over our school garden, but have been daunted by the work and upkeep. This podcast has reminded, refocused, and reignited my desire to get it growing again. And I feel like it is doable just with some soil and my students ready to learn!
Leila presents the school garden concept, emphasis on the school, in a way that really empowers the eager teacher as well as the reluctant teacher to get their hands dirty to develop meaningful lessons to enhance student learning. My main takeaway from the podcast so far is the school garden has to be student run, not built on the back of the martyr teacher, and Leila talks you through how to do it.
Thank for sharing your ideas Leila!
