Hands in the Dirt and Hearts in the Community: Developing Successful Partnerships for Urban Environmental Education

Web Abstract: 
Describes an urban environmental stewardship project undertaken by students at a Seattle public school in an effort to make their school more beautiful, their environment more healthy, and their learning more tangible. In partnership with neighbors and the community, students transformed a section of the school grounds into a garden refuge. Interdisciplinary exercises fostered critical observation, cooperative decision making, and communication skills.
