Gardening improves and changes kids’ lives, their communities, and the planet.
Are your children bored during the summer break? Do they need to break free from the summer couch slum? Enroll them in our summer growth program! Not only will they have fun growing their own food, they will learn valuable life skills that will help them navigate through life’s challenges.
In this 5-week program students will learn life lessons through gardening. We will teach the importance of planting seeds, nurturing those seeds and seeing their growth process. Our students will be growing their own crops while learning the meaning of life in a holistic way. They will learn how to harvest, clean, and cook the crops they grow. Students will be working in groups and on their own. It is very important to learn how to work together as a team as well as how to work alone while staying on task.
Gardening helps children:
- Slow down, notice things, and calm their mind and bodies
- Reconnect to their natural surroundings, their senses, bodies, and minds
- Eat better by connecting to where their fruits and veggies come from
- Cultivate a growth mindset by learning to appreciate “mistakes” as fun opportunities to grow
The 2022 Summer Growth Program will run from July 11th through August 12th, Monday- Friday.
Hours: 9am- 2pm
