A Visit to Life Lab - University of Santa Cruz, Californa

Life Lab in the US is a leader in the garden-based learning movement. At the Life Lab Garden Classroom Educational Center in Santa Cruz they promote experiential learning for people of all ages through field trips, children's camps, and teacher workshops. I visited Life Lab and was inspired by what a teaching garden can look like.  Groups of school children were roaming around picking food and cooking in an outdoor kitchen.

There were learning opportunities everywhere. A place to peek at the roots of vegetables as they grow!

The garden was jam packed with learning about bees, composting, cooking, sustainability and healthy eating.   It was an inspiration!
