Gardening with Kids


Name one child that does not enjoy digging in the dirt and making mud pies.  So why not start a school garden.

Gardening will engage students in a dynamic learning environment.  In the garden children can observe, discover, experiment, and nurture living things.  Gardens are a living laboratory where children will learn from real life experiences and where children can become active participants in the learning process.

So start your garden today.

Parents are even willing to leaned a helping hand to bring a living classroom to their children



All of the children wanted to help prepare the ground



They could not wait to put the plants in the ground



Dirty hands, no big deal 



Now we just need to wait for it to grow



The garden would not be complete without naming it.
Drum roll.....

The garden is now called the Yummy Garden 

Now it time to plant the butterfly garden

    Although it may not feel that way, children learn through play. They learn to share. They learn to cooperate. They learn to take turns and interact with each other in a congenial manner.

  2. Thank you and you are right play is a very important part of a child's learning process. We like to give them long periods uninterrupted play throughout the day.
