For the last 20 years, the Marche Region has been committed to create and preserve School Gardens and has acquired outstanding expertise to support the consolidation of a real outdoor educational culture within the school system.
During this period the first early calls for funding had been applied, so that over 1000 school horticulture projects are already activate.
This publication represents an additional forward step in this direction. It provides all schools of the Marche Region with guidelines to make each education school plan compliant with the general trend of outdoor teaching and create a proper regional format. In this regard, particular attention was paid in steering the “School Gardens” towards organic farming and the protection of the species and varieties belonging to the Regional Register of AgroBiodiversity.
Another objective was the synergetic cooperation among Schools Gardens, Educational Farms and Social Farming.
The mission of this publication is definitively ambitious: to reach all regional schools (nursery, primary and secondary ones) providing a unique format of garden educational method instead of a technical handbook. By applying this innovative and effective method schools, that has never experienced an Outdoor Laboratory, will be given the chance “to get its students’ hands dirty”.
The long term aim is to support the establishment of permanent school gardens different from occasional ones, strictly linked to a specific project, but similar to the gym, the science laboratory or the music room which belong the core formal educational program.

Enjoy the reading and the school garden!

The special identity of each territory is made of its unique wealth:

  • The local varieties or species, characterized by a certain adaptability to a specific environment and growing conditions in a particular area;
  • The tight link between the local variety and its growers’ habits, customs, traditions and knowledge;
  • The “guardian farmers”’ important role for the preservation, management, information and dissemination of the autochthonous genetic inheritance.
