Start the week by joining The Conversation about gardens and #enviroed
For a short read, we flag a recent summary of the benefits of gardens and gardening, including for schools, older people and mental health, that draws on a range of studies of environmental education.
Don’t forget we’ve a special issue in the making that focuses on botanic gardens and #enviroed … appearing in Vol 23, one of 10 issues in 2016.
