Lesson Plans for Kids Gardening Programs


These lesson plans and curriculums are designed to be used with a school garden program or an afterschool garden program.

Children love interactive lessons where they can use all five senses. Garden programs have been shown to encourage children to respect the earth and life, have an appreciation for where food comes from and enjoy healthy foods they have participated in growing.
