Learning through Gardening
Gardening enhances our quality of life in many ways. It provides fresh food, outdoor exercise and health benefits, and opportunities for life-long learning. It also creates pleasing landscapes and an improved environment and brings people together.
Children develop a wide-range of academic and social skills in the garden, including counting, cause and effect, cooperation, sharing, and patience. It also enhances the awareness of the link between plants and people. It allows children to see the advantages of diversity played out in their garden.
From tomatoes to sunflowers, peas to herbs, our gardens bring so much joy, flavor, and interest to our day.
