School gardens’ resource list.

April 24, 2015 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Earlier this week we profiled three new books on school gardens, and decided that this was a great topic for a resource list. Judy A, one of our fabulous reference librarians,  has created a list including books, articles and internet resources (see the Internet items below).  TDSB teachers can check out our Garden-based Learning resource list  in Google at this folder – .   Remember to use your TDSB google login and not your personal gmail address.
