Many students in rural areas do not receive higher education, so schools must adapt their curriculums to meet the needs of their students. The goal of this project is to develop a comprehensive educational gardening program to teach agricultural skills at the Baan Huay Euen School in Northern Thailand. Through observation and interviews with the staff and students, we found that the existing program lacked the effectiveness and structure required of successful educational gardens. To address these issues, we designed a gardening manual that will improve the efficiency of the garden and provide educators a consistent source from which to teach. The implementation of the manuals and other recommendations in the report can result in a more sustainable educational organic gardening program.
