Description

In this lesson, students use the Garden Design Tool to explore how a garden works as a living natural system. A Nature Works Everywhere Garden filters water, provides habitat, improves soil, reduces your carbon footprint and engages the community. Students map how these ecological systems operate in a garden, compare them to the natural world, and then use the Garden Design tool to create a productive mini-ecosystem! Each Nature Works Everywhere Gardens Activity Guide aids in the collection of conservation data from your garden.
