Beyond the Bean Seed
By Nancy Allen Jurenka
The 11 chapters created by the author in this book provide information, resources, student-centered educational activities that connect the garden to required subjects, games, and recipes for treats. While a great book for teaching ideas and methodology to connect the garden to required learning, this book will not stand alone. It is intended as a teacher companion reference. If your school plans to weave a school garden into its curriculum and would like to have that garden impact education most effectively in a positive way, then this book is an excellent reference, especially for the elementary grades.
