About this book

Schoolyards have come a long way from the barren playgrounds that many people remember. Today's school campuses often feature gardens in which students can learn about native plants and wildlife, grow vegetables and fruit, explore cultural traditions, practice reading and math skills, and use their imaginations to create fun play spaces. And for a growing number of urban students, these schoolyard gardens offer the best, if not the only, opportunity to experience the natural world firsthand and enjoy its many benefits.

This book is a practical, hands-on guide for creating a variety of learning environments in the arid Southwest of the USA.

Media reviews
A significant contribution to the fields of landscape architecture and environmental education. . . . This book's step-by-step explanation of the design process is excellent and has the potential to expand the book's audience beyond its schoolyard habitat and arid Southwest region."

# -Frederick Steiner, Dean, School of Architecture, University of Texas at Austin

"This guide is so well developed that it can serve as a primer in the education of landscape architects and other environmental professionals. The general public also can benefit from the practical and specific design steps, as well as from the comprehensive list of plant materials for arid and semi-arid climates in the United States."

-Pat D. Taylor, Director, Program in Landscape Architecture, University of Texas at Arlington
