About this Site
This website combines the activities/program planning tools found previously at the Garden-Based Learning blog and the gardening resources previously found at www.gardening.cornell.edu (the old site is still here).
The content has not changed, but has been reorganized to make resources more available with less clicks. We are working with Cornell Mann Library to update and turn many of the resources you will find here and turn them into factsheets.
Who is this site for?
The Garden-Based learning program at Cornell provides resources for homeowners, schools, community groups, and other “non-commercial” groups that are interested in growing food and flowers, attracting wildlife, and being good stewards of the natural world. Many Cornell resources meant for commercial lawn and farm situations have been adapted here for the “backyard” enthusiast.
From the main portal, at www.gardening.cornell.edu, you have several options:
– ACTIVITIES for lessons, projects, and curriculum to teach children of all ages
– HOW TO connects users to home and school gardening
– PROGRAM TOOLS provides research links, planning tools, and fundraising tips for projects
– CONNECT gives options for connecting to citizen science, volunteering, and community organizations
2. You can SEARCH multiple Cornell sites with our google custom search.
3. Browse the BLOG for up to date news and information
