Gardening with kids

Why is gardening good for kids?

Gardening is a healthy and fun activity for kids. The garden offers children a great range of activities and lessons. Kids in the garden not only develop new skills but they learn about science and nutrition. Most importantly they spend time in a natural environment and get physically active.

Here are a few of the benefits of getting kids involved in the garden:

Responsibility: caring for and tending to plants.

Physical activity: benefits their physical and mental health. Gardening helps kids meet their recommended daily physical activity levels.

Nutrition: learning about the sources of their food and (hopefully) gaining a new appreciation for vegetables.

Creativity: In planning, planting and maintaining their own projects.
