Garden-Based Curriculum Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
As Ecuador’s educational system has shifted to include more active learning, some schools and organizations are interested in harnessing the power of garden-based learning. The goal of this project was to develop a garden-based curriculum for schools in the Sierra region of Ecuador. Through interviews and analyses of the Ecuadorian national curriculum and a variety of garden lesson plans, we identified the resources and needs of potential pilot organizations, the most effective garden-based approaches and methods, and possible entry points for this curriculum to be integrated into Ecuadorian schools. The culmination of this project manifested in a collection of garden-based lesson plans and activities, and a set of recommendations for schools looking to implement garden-based learning.
