Time in the garden! Gardens can be a great place to foster a meaningful and fun learning experience for children. It can offer children an opportunity to learn how plants are grown, as well as responsibility, caretaking, independence, and environmental awareness. Introducing children to gardening is a great way to increase their awareness of where food comes from and the importance of the environment. The garden is started in the spring and each group gets a turn taking care of it. They even get the opportunity to harvest there own veggies and eat them too.
