Getting children involved in gardening allows them to experience plant care and nourish a responsible, consistent, and positive attitude towards work. As they grow their own vegetables, they gain many benefits including
Responsibility– from caring for their micro-garden
Understanding– as they learn about cause and effect such as that plants die without water, plants grow when they are cared for
Self-confidence – from achieving their goal of growing something and enjoying the food they have grown
Love of nature – from watching the process from seed to edible plant
Reasoning and discovery – learning about the science of plants, nutrition, and using what they grow
Creativity– finding new and exciting ways to grow food and how to eat it for enjoyment as well as nutrition
Nutrition – learning about where fresh food comes from.
Microgreens are the perfect gardening experience for children. Each crop goes from seed to harvest in about 10 days, and each day there is something new to discover.
