|English||This book is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors.
The book is a helpful summary of history, theories, literature, experiences and lessons learned about Garden based learning programs (GBL), specifically for basic education.
The document first defines garden based learning and describes how GBL is integrated within educational programmes in both formal and non-formal settings. From the history and the theories of GBL, authors develop how garden based learning is inspired by the concepts of learning-by-doing, project based learning, real world learning and child-centred learning.
