Children who spend time in green settings have improved creativity, imagination, cognitive function, and intellect.
Gardening connects us with Mother Nature, influences environmental stewardship and is an ongoing lesson in a healthy lifestyle and good nutrition.
Consider involving your children in planning your garden, and garden alongside them when it’s time to plant. Let them select veggies, herbs and flowers they would like to grow. Get them involved early in the process to increase their investment and help them learn.
Planning a garden can help them practice math skills and expose them to the science of plants.
In the remaining winter days, plan your garden and invite kids to join you. You will all reap the benefits this summer and onward.
