Garden Based learning

Garden based learning goes beyond traditional classroom settings, as it transforms a garden into a vibrant learning space where students can discover, experiment, and apply their knowledge in real-life contexts. By integrating the garden into the curriculum, students are exposed to a multidisciplinary approach that connects various subjects and brings them to life in a tangible and meaningful way. Whether it’s studying the science of plants, exploring the ecosystem, or understanding the importance of nutrition, the garden serves as an interactive classroom where students can explore, learn, and grow.

Class-wise curriculum for Workshop:

The benefits of Garden based learning are manifold and impact various aspects of a student’s development. Firstly, it promotes physical fitness as students actively engage in gardening activities, such as digging, planting, and harvesting. These hands-on experiences not only provide exercise but also instill a sense of responsibility and self-confidence as students witness the fruits of their labor.

Additionally, Garden based learning offers a wealth of educational and vocational skill development opportunities. Students learn about the interconnectedness of nature, the environment, and sustainable practices. They acquire knowledge in areas such as biology, botany, environmental science, and nutrition. These skills can pave the way for future careers in agriculture, horticulture, or other related fields.

Moreover, the garden serves as a sanctuary for stress relief, relaxation, and improved mental health. Being surrounded by nature has a calming effect on students, allowing them to unwind, connect with their surroundings, and find solace in the beauty of their environment. The garden becomes a space where students can find peace and rejuvenation amidst the demands of their academic lives.

Garden based learning also fosters personal fulfillment and self-confidence. As students witness the growth of their plants and the tangible outcomes of their efforts, they develop a sense of accomplishment and pride. The garden becomes a source of inspiration and a reminder of the students’ capacity to nurture and create.
