Review quote

"Dirty Teaching recognizes that the most effective way to embed teaching and learning in the outdoors is not to create huge quantities of resources but to plant seeds so that teachers can grow their own ideas. Easy to dip into for inspiration but also compelling to read as a narrative that engages and informs in equal measure." -- Juno Hollyhock "Executive Director, Learning through Landscapes"
