I am contacting various programs that offer
childrens' garden programming, particularly after school. I am trying to
research whether such programs are doing any type of surveys or other assessment
activities with participants ( kids, parents, teachers). I am especially
interested in any evaluations related to outcomes or goals that have been
established for the programs.
I am involved with a garden project that runs a
series of after school sessions throughout the year in Somerville MA. As I am
working towards a Masters in Education, I am researching the above issue and
would appreciate any answer; pleas respond to firstname.lastname@example.org .
With the big push on after school funding at the
national level, I am interested in how garden and other community based
environmental hands-on education programs are being able to meet the rising
demand for evaulation and documention.
Thank you for your time and
