An Environmental Education Program Based Upon a Community Organic Garden. Final Report.
Kopper, William D.
Ann Arbor Ecology Center's Community Organic Garden represents a different approach to environmental education. The project helped with the development of programs which achieved a number of goals including: (1) mixing students and citizens in a working/social situation, (2) teaching environmental principles through the experience of gardening, and (3) providing opportunities for urban people to relate to nature in a way that went beyond the demands of technological society. Organic gardens are seen to have a potential for becoming an important form of environmental education and a force for change in the country. This report includes a number of appendixes that outline the scope of the program, publicity given, and photographs of the site. (Author/MA)
