This webinar has an impressive amount of information and resources embedded in it. Most importantly though it is truly a resource and inspiration for teachers/administrators/community looking to install a true outdoor learning space. If you want to grow a small bed of plants with your class choose a journal article instead. The webinar presenters highlight serious spaces here!

This webinar has quite a few good ideas and more importantly some great funding information for mini-grants and other designation programs that might help get your schoolyard garden up and running. A few things you should note however - the introduction is long and you need to get through it before the speakers come in - about five minutes in to the recording. Also at 38 minutes the webinar breaks into discussion rooms - definitely great of you are a participant - but on the recording there is a full 7 minutes of radio silence. There are control buttons on the bottom left of the elluminate screen - use them to fast forward through until the discussion resumes. Like all archived webinars, the questions reflect the participants on the day of. It can be somewhat frustrating when the questions being posted are not your question, but there were several points made that I hadn't even thought about, so it was worth the listening time!
