Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto
Garden Organic is delighted to support the Learning Outside the Classroom Manifesto, which was launched by the Secretary of State for Education and Skills on 28 November 2006.
The Manifesto is a 'movement' or joint undertaking that many different stakeholders have helped to create and to which anyone can sign up. We support the Manifesto because we believe it will help to ensure that all children and young people have a variety of high quality experiences outside the classroom environment, as an essential part of their learning and development.
Garden Organic recognises the value of Learning Outside the Classroom and supports the Manifesto's vision and aims. We have therefore already endorsed the Manifesto along with over 330 other organisations, schools and individuals by becoming a signatory.
We will be working with schools, local authorities and the many other organisations committed to providing an exciting range of teaching and learning opportunities outside the classroom.
To find out more, get details of all signatories and pledges received so far, and to order or download a copy of the Manifesto, visit: www.teachernet.gov.uk/learningoutsidetheclassroom

The Prince's Rainforests Project
This project, led by HRH The Prince of Wales, brings climate change into classrooms through compelling learning about rainforests. A wealth of material has been created for children from 3-16 years old that links to the new curriculum for both primary and secondary schools. Rainforests are home to up to half of the world's plants and animals and provide crucial ecological services to the planet helping to mitigate against climate change. The online resources available cover the role of rainforests globally, climate change, people who depend on the forest, sustainable income, water, animals, plants, food and global cultures, and include lesson plans, games, activities, and competitions.
