This paper 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. This paper was presented at the "Aid Agencies Workshop Education for Rural People: Targeting the Poor" (Rome, December 2002). The teaching of practical skills in basic education and school garden practices have been experimented for years in many parts of the world. With almost forty years of direct experience in these areas,the author provides a brief analysis of the different approaches, lessons learned and suggestions for improving upon the relevance of these activities. The first priority in educating rural people is to teach rural children, youth and adults the essential learning tools (such as literacy, oral expression, and arithmetic); school gardens should not overshadow such key objectives or create unrealistic expectations.
