|Resource title||Impact of school gardening on learning – Final report submitted to the Royal Horticultural Society|

|Summary text/ abstract||The Campaign for School Gardening, launched in 2007 by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has a place in the growing number of educational initiatives (such as healthy schools, sustainable schools, eco-schools, the Forest Schools movement and Building Schools for the Future) that have sought to bring together the two key issues of sustainable development and healthy living in recent years. Increasing focus on these matters has been evident in politics, in academic life and in the media, with concerns voiced about environmental damage, rising rates of obesity, decreased physical activity in childhood and a belief that children and young people are increasingly distanced from the natural world, something that Louv (20081) calls 'nature deficit disorder'.|
