School Gardening Program

Download Attachment...
The Days Are Getting Longer!!!!!

The days are getting longer and spring will soon be around the corner.  I have been getting a number of calls and emails from teachers regarding our School Program.  It was a huge success last year and with the calls and emails I have been receiving, it looks like it will be another great year.  Jensen’s is a great supporter of the community and as such, supplies soil, containers, seedlings for the children to plant and a coupon for each child so they are able to drop in to Jensen’s for a free package of vegetable seeds or seedlings.  I go into the classroom, talk about gardening basics, container gardening, basic plant care and what plants give us.  I also have a number of gardening jokes and riddles for the children to solve.  We have a lot of fun.  I have taught children from daycare level to grade 6.
I have been teaching children’s gardening for over 18 years and have experienced first hand what gardening teaches children.  It teaches patience; respect of property; a greater respect for all living and growing things and it creates a greater sense of pride when they are able to create beauty or see something growing that they have planted or cared for.  Gardening also gets us outside for some much needed fresh air and exercise after being in so much over the winter. Gardening is very therapeutic and great for the soul!
If you are a teacher or teacher’s friend, please contact us as soon as possible so we can plan a date and time to come out to spread the good word about gardening!
