Here’s what happens

Experience growing

Learn about health and nutrition


Enjoy eating your harvest


Oh but you learn much more than growing ….

Tending to the needs of your plants, requires us to pay attention

Daily care for a living organism cultivates empathy &  responsibility

Learning that plants die without water or sunlight (cause and effect), we gain a deeper understanding of how we are relational beings that are interconnected

Growing food builds environmental / ecological awareness, bringing it into the classroom reminds us we are part of a greater ecological web

Harvesting your crops is a rewarding experience that builds self-confidence

Learn valuable information about nutrition and health through the growing experience

In the digitalized world of instant gratification, slowing down, taking your time, watching life unfold is like a breath of fresh air. Delayed gratification is a learned skill.

Necessary “Quiet time” / “Brain break” activity to reboot the mind for learning. The growing experience is calming and relaxing, once they find their groove, growing can become a wonderful practice in mindfulness
