Maria Fowler, Principal, Silver Gate Elementary School

"These books are magical! I ordered them for our school and have loved all the lessons I have had a chance to try with my students. Colleagues are using them too. I miss being in the garden at school and will continue to work with students to keep them gardening this summer at their homes."


“I LOVE everything about the lesson development from the beginning to the end. The pictures and all the tips & suggestions are so helpful. I can tell that thoughtfulness and effort went into each & every part of the lessons. I would highly recommend this program for a preschool & even into k-4 school system. It’s laid out in an easy-to-follow format!"
