Gardening offers a wealth of benefits for kids and adults of all ages, including:
Gardening activities give children – and adults – a new appreciation for food. Kids learn where their food comes from and how it grows. Many kids develop an interest in cooking and eating healthier simply by spending more time gardening.
Spending time outdoors and in the garden can be therapeutic and calming for children. It keeps kids moving and gives them a chance to explore.
For plants to grow and thrive, they need care. Watching a plant go from seed to harvest can give children a sense of accomplishment and can be a rewarding experience. Throughout the journey, kids learn to care for and nurture plants. These are skills they will bring to their adult lives and relationships.
Gardening is an excellent opportunity for kids to learn about the science of plant growth. Why do plants need the sun? Why are their leaves green? It’s a hands-on science lesson that kids will enjoy.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of joining our kids gardening class is that it’s fun.
