AHS, Garden-Based Learning Program collaborate on updated guide

The American Horticultural Society and the Cornell Garden-Based Learning Program have joined forces  to update and make available a free, web-based  tool to help educators and others launch garden programs for children, youth and families.

Sowing the Seeds of Success, also available as a printable publication, is designed to address “the increased interest in school and community garden projects and the troubling issues of food insecurity and nature deficit disorder,” says Fiona Doherty, educator enrichment specialist with the Cornell Garden-Based Learning Program, who led the update.

Originally published in 1999, the guide includes lessons, activities and program tools as well as links to additional resources to help start, sustain, expand and reflect on garden programs. “These can be used by teachers, parents and leaders of other community gardening programs to help empower young people with the skills to become the next generation of environmental stewards,” adds Doherty.

The guide is available in both mobile friendly and printer friendly versions.
