Despite the uncertain times for all of us, we are delighted that our Grants program will proceed this year. Now more than ever it is so important that children are given the opportunity to learn the skills and joys of gardening.
Providing students with opportunities to garden provides them with:
- active learning and development of lifelong skills
- connection to nature,
- stewardship of their school grounds
- health and well-being benefits of relaxation and stress reductions.
Now is the perfect time to plan garden projects for your school. When things do return to normal it would be wonderful to treat the outdoor space to some loving care and for students who have been stuck indoors to get outside and do some outdoors learning.
