Learning Gardens


Instructional gardens are often placed post hoc in locations that are less than ideal. They are frequently far removed from primary learning spaces, making them difficult to seamlessly integrate into the daily experience of students. Even with the best of intentions, they can easily become neglected and fall into disuse.


Instead, gardens placed directly outside learning studios, learning commons, or culinary arts kitchens with strong indoor-outdoor connections make for easily accessible, meaningful additions to the outdoor learning environment. To do this, gardens should be considered from the onset of the design process and intentionally designed as an integral part of the school and the daily learning experiences of students.
