Urban Roots “Little Sprouts” Gardening Program was designed to foster healthy eating and nutrition among preschool to school-age children. Many young people are still learning to like vegetables. By growing their own, you may convince your child that carrots and tomatoes are not only good for her, but taste good, too.
When our Little Sprouts plant seedlings or seeds into the ground, it connects them to the whole process. From digging the hole, to setting the seed, to watering, our little sprouts will learn to how food is grown while having fun in the dirt!
Garden-based teaching addresses different learning styles and intelligences. Every learner can blossom in the garden, improving achievement scores by learning is more relevant and hands-on.
