This documentary shows how any early childhood centre can develop exceptional outdoor nurture-learn-play spaces, gorgeous productive food gardens – and delightfully happy children. It depicts the inspiring learning environments of ten pre-schools in Aotearoa-New Zealand, where gardens are central to their curriculum. These learnscapes facilitate children’s wholistic development – through connecting with the natural world and the source of their food, supported by extended community. ‘Awakening Gardeners’ is Part 1 of the ‘Growing Schools’ series.
