Author - Carolyn Nuttall and Janet Millington
Publisher - Permanent Publications

Permanent Publications says, "This book is ideal for teachers and home educators who want to incorporate outdoor education at all levels of the school curriculum.Given that the average European child now spends 90% of their life inside, outdoor classrooms are becoming ever more vital in our schools. Outdoor Classrooms will show you how to:

   - set up vegetable gardens
   - teach children about growing food
   - bring food security into the curriculum
   - introduce the concepts of human and planetary health
   - explore the subject of sustainability within a practical framework."

About the Author
Permanent Publications says, "Carolyn Nuttall, co-author of Outdoor Classrooms, is a graduate of the University of Queensland, a trained teacher and a student of permaculture.
She is a pioneer in garden-based learning. Since 1992, when the children in her class made a small vegetable garden in the grounds of a school in Brisbane, Australia, she has become a champion for better school grounds and better teaching and learning methods."

Permanent Publications says, "Janet, co-author of Outdoor Classrooms, is an educationalist, author and researcher with a long background in Community Development and Permaculture Education. She has vast practical experience in course design and teaching at all levels including teacher training. Janet matches that with years of practical experience in developing her own property towards best practice sustainability and in the establishment and use of community and school gardens following the permaculture principles."
