Description: Gardening appeals to all ages and stages and can be used as a tool to spark curiosity, improve focus, boost self-esteem, and establish lifelong relationships with food, nutrition, wildlife, and the environment. In this hands-on, outdoor program, we will focus on engaging children in the home garden with activities geared towards growing not only food and flowers but cultivating confidence as well. This program is best suited for families with children ages 5-14.
