How can we teach them young?
Sustainability is a buzz word these days, and like all new things, we are not sure how we can help our children do the best they can for the environment. Children who learn young about nature, conservation, and protection of biodiversity in the environment will grow up to do more for the environment and themselves.
Studies have shown that when children have contact with soil during digging and planting activity, they have improved moods, better learning experiences and decreased anxiety. The self-esteem a child gets from eating tomatoes he helped grow is tremendous.
Time spent growing a garden helps children connect with nature and how they have an essential role in taking care of it. It’s a beautiful way to teach your child that they are never too young to make a difference in the world! Try gardening with your little one and share with us your experiences.
