Free resource material - Natural play, playspaces and gardening with children


I was reviewing some of the natural play resources that I have on my blog page and have mean't to do a post sharing the links for a while. All materials are free to download and where it is a copy of someone else's creation I have given appropriate attribution. With the Powerpoint presentations I only ask you do likewise if utilizing them in a group teaching or training sessions. I will post one a  day when I have the time.

Ebooks

This guide provides specific information for educators and parents who want to introduce the concepts of the growth and care of edible vegetables to children. The book specifically addresses vegetation growth, taste, smell and texture, universal access, children's tools and participation, climatic planting zones, positioning plants within your playspace/garden, a global perspective on different types of gardens, specific information about the construction of the garden, propagation methods, preparation for planting, appropriate vegetables to plant, organic methods to feed and protect your vegetables, harvesting, preserving and information about plant and seed suppliers worldwide.
