9781433115257: Roots and Research in Urban School Gardens

This book explores the urban school garden as a bridge between environmental action and thought. As a small-scale response to global issues around access to food and land, urban school gardens promote practical knowledge of farming as well as help renew cultural ideals of shared space and mutual support for the organic, built environment. Through a comprehensive history of school garden practice rooted in Eastern industrial cities, to case studies from four Pacific Rim regions, this book examines the practice and culture of the urban school garden as a central symbol for environmental learning. As poetically described by students, teachers, and community members in both historical and contemporary gardens, the story of the urban school garden inspires a new narrative in connecting learners to the land.

About the Author:

Veronica Gaylie, PhD, is a writer, teacher and author of The Learning Garden: Ecology, Teaching and Transformation.

Review:

«No place tells the story of ecological urbanism better than urban gardens. ‘Roots and Research in Urban School Gardens’ uses case studies of school gardens in California, Washington and Vancouver to reveal the power of gardens in human and community development. This scholarly yet poetic volume uses the words and stories of people involved in these projects to shape a hopeful vision of urban sustainability. It lays out a new way of learning using community action and gardening to transform both the curriculum and physical place of schools. ‘Roots and Research in Urban School Gardens’ is the most comprehensive review of school gardens to date. This book will be a useful resource for teachers, parents and public officials involved in community greening and placebased learning.» (Mark Francis, FASLA, Professor Emeritus of Landscape Architecture, University of California, Davis and author of ‘Urban Open Space’)
«‘Roots and Research in Urban School Gardens’ convincingly captures the voices of students and their teachers engaged with intensity in learning in the garden. I have personally seen children and youth take deep interest in both the soils and the fruits – literally and metaphorically – of their school gardens. This book conveys a powerful story of robust gardens across four regions and in doing so inspires us with regenerative possibilities both for education and for the environment. This book also strongly supports local efforts committed to equity and social justice, concerns often lost in the discourse around school gardens. Veronica Gaylie is to be commended for seeding urban hope.» (Dilafruz Williams, Professor, Educational Leadership and Policy, Portland State University,and Portland School Board member)
