The Learning Garden

Ecology, Teaching, and Transformation

Veronica Gaylie

This book tells the story of building a campus «learning garden» over a series of cohorts of student teachers and environmental education students. The project began with high ideals, no funding, and a strong desire to do something about the environment: the result was a transformation in attitude toward nature, community and toward the learning process itself. Examining the process through three key metaphors – garden as environment, garden as community, garden as transformation – this book provides a bridge between theory and practice for ecology-centered teaching and learning.
