Wreath Activity Provides a Sense of Place James Doyiakos, environmental science teacher at Roald Amundsen High School in northwest Chicago, figured out how to turn an invasive plant problem into a creative lesson to connect his 150 freshman students with nature—by making wreaths. Vigorous grapevine grows up among the lilac bushes edging a school parking lot, threatening to choke out the lilac plants. Instead of pulling the grape plants, every year around the second week of November, Doyiakos takes his students out to trim down the grapevine and gather whatever colorful items—rosehips, aster blooms, leaves, even bits of trash—catch their eye. Then the students form the cut grapevine into wreaths of all sizes and decorate them with what they gathered in the garden. The activity, says Doyiakos, is his way to help his kids, most from immigrant families, anchor themselves to a natural place and capture it at a specific time.

Grow Your Program: Benefits of Garden-Based Learning | Cornell Garden-Based Learning Home | Benefits | Research That Supports Our Work | Planning & Organizing | Press Packet | Evaluation Benefits of Garden-Based Learning Gardening enhances our quality of life in numerous ways: providing fresh food, exercise and health benefits, opportunities for multi-generational and life-long learning, creating pleasing landscapes and improved environment, and bringing people together. Garden-based learning programs result in increased nutrition and environmental awareness, higher learning achievements, and increased life skills for our students. They are also an effective and engaging way to integrate curriculum and meet learning standards, giving young people the chance to develop a wide range of academic and social skills. Garden experiences foster ecological literacy and stewardship skills, enhancing an awareness of the link between plants in the landscape and our clothing, food, shelter, and well-being.
