“ This 4 season indoor gardening program is designed for Canadian elementary school classrooms. The objective of the program is to re-connect children with nature and empower essential life skills for a healthy, productive future. I founded the program with the collaboration and support of teachers and the program has been successful at integrating engaging, natural experiences with core curriculum strands in math, art, language, science, health and nutrition. I designed the garden itself to be an object of beauty in the classroom, to inspire calmness and creative thought for the students and their forward thinking, collaborative teachers. I am a very visual person and find great inspiration by what my senses absorb around me. I wanted to provide something sensory and useful for students, especially those that may rely on different experiences to excel. As the project moves forward, new ideas, inspiration and collaborations will further expand the rich learning experiences the program offers to students from Kindergarten to grade 8”.
