Some great ideas to get kids involved in gardening, plants & nature
As the chills of winter begin to fade and the sun once again warms the air; it’s time to Spring into Gardening! And with the September school holidays just around the corner, there’s no better time to get your kids involved in a little outdoor recreation of the gardening variety. We have several fabulous green-gardening activities that are perfect for teaching a few gardening techniques as well as certain to occupy them for at least an hour or two!
A worm composting project is one sure-fire way to get them involved in gardening and introduce or affirm a greener lifestyle choice. Worm composting is lots of fun, educational and really easy! It not only teaches them about recycling but the bonus is they also get to play with slimy worms while learning how plants and organisms interact to transform fruits and veggie scraps into valuable compost. Your young budding gardening troops will love it – Guaranteed!
