Closed petition Include funding for more school gardens in the 2020-21 school building programme
Ideally all schools should have a garden for health, systems learning, emotional & intellectual development, environmental resilience & sustainable work opportunities. Adapt a corner of a playground/sports field/car park to enable development of school curricula & fresh food for local communities.
We know from decades of research globally that outdoor learning & 'garden school' pedgagogies are extremely beneficial for healthy development of children & youth, as well as for lifelong learning & health. We know from climate research that we urgently need to increase urban green space & protect biological diversity in our environment-locally, nationally & globally. Additionally, we know sustainable agricultural practices & food chains increase the resilience of local economies. A win-win.
