Benefits for children

Engages All the Senses: children can touch and feel the dirt, seeds and flowers, see the vibrant colours and varied sizes of the plants, hear the sound of the vegetable when it is taken from the plant and smell the amazing scents of the flowers.

Enhances Fine Motor Development: Scooping up the dirt, placing the seeds in the pots and pouring the water all take fine motor control and strength.

Introduces Children to Scientific Concepts: Gardening is a wonderful introduction into the world of science especially botany, biology and chemistry. When children plant their first seeds they become curious about what will happen next. They make their own hypothesis and monitor the progress each day. Without even realising it, children are learning the basic steps of the scientific process. As children get older, they learn about the impact of sunlight and water on the growth of a plant. They learn which plants need more sunlight, which need less water and how long they take to grow. Gardening offers wonderful science lessons right at home!

Quality Family Time: Working together with your child to decide what flowers and vegetables to plant and where to plant them.

Responsibility: Children learn to be responsible for their plants by caring for them every day!

Taking Care of the Environment: When children garden, they realise how important it is to take care of the Earth if they want their garden to grow and produce healthy plants. It creates the perfect opportunity for discussion about concepts such as pollution, pesticides and recycling.

Develops Math Skills: There are so many teachable math moments when gardening from measuring the soil depth to counting the seeds. You can also embed math lessons into the gardening experience. For eg. measuring the growth of the plant, measure and compare the sizes of the vegetables also the number of petals on the flowers.

Teaches Patience: Waiting patiently for their seeds to grow!
