Garden Design Case Study – Crowthorne
Case Studies - School Gardens
The case studies in this section provide information about what other schools have accomplished by integrating classroom curricula into school garden activities, as well as some contact information so the people doing this work can be reached for questions or collaborations. Many of the examples are of indigenous school gardens. The program in Tuba City is designed to educate students about garden based nutrition and to connect students with both traditional and fresh fruits and vegetables. There's currently no resources. The libraries below have been tagged by members of this program. Libraries allow you to curate resources by organizing them into customizable bundles, and can contain your own resources in combination with resources created by other members.

Urban Agriculture: Findings From Four City Case Studies
Urban agriculture contributes to local economic development, poverty alleviation, the social inclusion of the urban poor and women, as well as to the greening of the city and the productive reuse of urban wastes. While there is a growing awareness about the role of urban agriculture in the context of food security and poverty alleviation for urban populations, urban agriculture largely remains an informal sector that is not well integrated into agricultural policies or urban planning. Gaps in the availability of good quality, current and comparable data on the benefits and constraints of urban agriculture limit the design of relevant policies and interventions that would enhance the positive impacts for urban livelihoods and public health, as well as for the environment. Through data collected in surveys, focus group discussions, and city consultations, this study comparatively analyzes the impacts of urban agriculture on income and expenditure, food security and nutrition, and social impacts.
As scientists pore over complicated equations and dissect the very fabric of life to find answers to the global problems we all face, there is, just occasionally, a flash of brilliance that comes from absolute simplicity. Just over two years ago they decided to look for an alternative income from the land and considered such things as mountain- and quad-biking tracks. Realising that there was a growing demand for allotments, they decided to research this area instead.
