Building a Community Garden: A Collaboration of New Mexico Farmers and Educators” was published by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) of New Mexico in February 2010 as a handbook for school teachers and community groups to teach gardening skills. The AFSC convened a nine person Advisory Council made up of local farmers and teachers to create lesson plans that can enhance the classroom curriculum to meet state standards for middle schools and also can be used with community groups who are creating gardens.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
