Gardens in Surrey Schools – Places for Calm and Connection

There has always been a keen interest in gardens in Surrey Schools. Gardens represent the possibility for experiential, meaningful learning experiences, and places for learners to experience a sense of calm as well as a connection with self, others, the environment, and curriculum.

Aligning with Surrey School’s vision of learning, “Learning by Design”, school gardens are flexible learning environments that research suggests offer the promise of educational benefits, a connection with nature, improved lifestyle and nutrition choices, and social/emotional learning and life skill development.

During the 2017/18 school year, Surrey Schools is developing a coordinated process on school garden implementation that will ensure that gardens are both sustainable and accessible to all interested school communities.
