One of the objectives of PaRC is to make available course notes and curricula for teachers in parks and leisure subjects at all levels, from primary to postgraduate. We appeal to teachers, tutors and lecturers to send us materials which are either out of copyright or can be published under Creative Commons conditions with copyright approval.


The attached proposal dated 1985 for a course in urban horticulture has been found in the archives and no doubt describes only one of many related courses that are now or have been presented in one state or another. We don’t pretend that it is a reliable guide to modern education in this field. We publish it here by way of a challenge to teachers and lecturers to send us better material!
