Plant a Garden

Your kids probably won’t mind getting their hands a little dirty, and they can take pride in knowing that they’re growing their very own plants, while also helping the environment!

Here are a few benefits of gardening with your children:

  • It instills an appreciation and respect for nature.
  • It can improve nutrition knowledge and a preference for eating fruits and vegetables.
  • It can give you and your children a sense of accomplishment as you plant your garden and watch it grow.
  • It’s a great way to spend quality time with your children as you work toward a common goal.

So try your hand at gardening with your children today, and make a difference in their lives and with the environment as well!
