In February of 2010, armed with shovels, students at Jasper Place High School descended into their courtyard to create an edible forest. In addition to producing food, hands-on learning, and cross-curricular opportunities the garden requires no watering, fertilizing, or tilling.
What can nature teach us about creating resilient education systems? Join me as we explore how patterns and principles found in forests matter to classrooms and communities. Discover how interconnections and the principles of succession, biodiversity, nutrient cycling, and ecological niche relate to the learning process.
