The curriculum section provides over one hundred garden-based lessons to create, expand, and sustain garden-based learning experiences. It offers practical ideas and resources for every level of garden-based learning from sprouting seeds to understanding the food system.

This curriculum section was compiled by the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources Garden-Based Learning Workgroup. The content for this section was borrowed, with permission, from various resources. It was our goal to use existing resources as not to “recreate the wheel” and to give a broad example of the garden-based learning resources that are currently in print.

The section is divided into 12 theme areas with applications for primary and upper grade level students.

The sustainable production, processing and distribution of food is one of mankind's greatest challenges. The eLearning course ‘Designing sustainable food systems’ offers an insight into this complex topic.

The online course is available free of charge. It is in English and aimed at students and others who have an interest in sustainable food systems with or without experience in the subject. The first module begins with an introduction to the topic of sustainability and describes the problems in the global food system, together with possible solutions. Modules 2 and 3 explain how food value chains can be made more sustainable and analyse the role of food in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
