Why Gardening is good for Kids

  • 1911 Responsibility – from caring for plants
  • Understanding – as they learn about cause and effect (for example, plants die without water, weeds compete with plants)
  • Self-confidence – from achieving their goals and enjoying the food they have grown
  • Love of nature – a chance to learn about the outdoor environment in a safe and pleasant place
  • Reasoning and discovery – learning about the science of plants, animals, weather, the environment, nutrition and simple construction
  • Physical activity – doing something fun and productive
  • Cooperation – including shared play activity and teamwork
  • Creativity – finding new and exciting ways to grow food
  • Nutrition – learning about where fresh food comes from.

Getting Healthy!

An important part of growing our food is also eating it! Children will help make a healthy snack that all will enjoy.

Please contact Max Rosa if the child or caregiver has any allergies (this includes nuts, citrus herbs, etc.).
