‘Hands in the Dirt’ Learning by Jane Hirschi

Hands-in-Dirt
Naturalist Intelligence Energized!

Jane Hirschi has written a very articulate explanation for how a classroom or school garden can enhance school climate and learning.

While I appreciate this article, I wonder how many schools could support such an effort? It would take a LOT of commitment and energized teachers who are passionate about gardening to make this work. I wonder if there more moderately-sized projects that can serve to activate the Naturalist intelligence through gardening?
