Having fun, getting active, being outdoors - gardening is perfect for kids.
A lifelong love of gardening is a great gift to give your kids. Through gardening, they'll learn about the environment, develop new physical and social skills and make a real contribution to caring for the world they live in.
Kids get a real kick of making things grow. But more than that, growing things in a school setting adds the potential for kids to achieve real learning outcomes while creating their own gardens.
This is why NGIA has put together KidsGrow, a practical toolkit of resources to help schools get kids gardening. Specially created by teachers for teachers, the KidsGrow's hands-on gardening projects are directly linked to the school curriculum and expose students to a range of thinking skills and learning styles. So with KidsGrow, students will be learning as they are designing, planting and nurturing their very own gardens.
There are great rewards for schools too. The KidsGrow themed gardens offer schools a means of creating outdoor learning environments, sustainably improving their school grounds and contributing to their School Environmental Management Plan.
And above all, learning with KidsGrow is fun.
