Gardening & Nutrition

Whether indoors or outdoors, in containers, or in raised beds, we can grow real food in our city environments! Gardens provides many opportunities to engage the whole body and mind. We are reminded of our connection to nature. They are places where people of all ages can explore with all of their senses and learn about the science and magic of plants! Plus, we get to grow and eat yummy, healthy food!

We build cognitive connections in language arts, science, math, and social studies. We also build valuable kinesthetic abilities, as those who learn by doing and moving flourish in these environments. Educational and Skill-Building Connections
