Ripe for Change takes a big-picture view of the school garden movement and the state of garden-based learning in public K-8 education. The book provides a wealth of practical case studies and resources to show how garden-based learning is being systematically implemented in public education, and offers next steps for expanding the use of gardens in schools.

The benefits of garden-based learning are enormous.Ripe for Changeis a powerful tool to enhance learning that every school should utilize. Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder, and chairman emeritus of the Children & Nature Network

Nobody knows this potential better than CitySprouts founder Jane Hirschi.Ripe for Changeis the perfect resource for anyone looking to join the growing school garden movement. Curt Ellis, cofounder and CEO, FoodCorps

InRipe for Change, Jane Hirschi makes a straightforward, compelling, and uplifting case for the need for outdoor experiences at a time when many teachers and administrators feel they must tether students to desks and do little beyond test preparation. The book s case studies illustrate that it is indeed possible to engage students in meaningful experiences while simultaneously addressing standards.
