Seeds of Green

Seeds of Green is a basic guide for teachers and others to enable lessons based on ecosystems to be enlivened.

The RHS know that children love gardening – so you need Seeds of Green to inspire their dreams or enhance their knowledge about food.

Seeds of Green has been written to enable children’s minds to be enlightened by nature through gardening.

Landscaping school grounds to create the most useful and practical area for the learning experience outdoors is an investment for their future as environmentally aware citizens.

Gardening is a lifetime learning process.

Gardening covers ecology, geology, microbiology, taxonomy, with many other subjects associated with it; and it has socioeconomic importance.

“What you do [as landscapers] is not about strategies or master plans – it is about paradise lost and won and its about mystery. If you can’t dream in it … or make love in it, you might as well Tarmac it.”
