On this page, we have gathered a myriad of resources from members of our community. Not only are these resources helpful for taking learning outdoors, they also underscore cross-curricular and interdisciplinary connections across the curriculum. We share these resources with great hope that you will consider using some of the lesson plans, garden strategies, and educational heuristics that we have employed and continue to employ on a seasonal basis. If you have any questions about what you see here, or if you care to contribute to this growing online platform, please do not hesitate to contact mitchell.mclarnon [at] mail.mcgill.ca (subject: Garden%20resources) (us)
