Inner-city minority youth and a community garden as an approach to environmental education

by 1973- Telligman, Amy Lee

Abstract (Summary)
In this thesis a community garden combined with an environmental education curriculum was designed and implemented to address the impact on inner-city minority youth’s perception of the environment. Hand-drawn mental maps were used as a pre-test post test qualitative measure. The results from the study did not adequately answer the research question. Rather, the results illustrate the barriers and limitations that exist when implementing a community gardening environmental education endeavor.
