Many of us are wanting to improve our children’s diets, build their connection to the natural world and the natural world, and nurture their need to move and play in the wonders of the outdoors.
This class will provide you with all of the tools you need to go home and design your perfect garden considering your child’s interests, the small details of your space, your budget, and the amount of time you want to spend on labor.
This garden will not only feed their bellies, but also their minds and bodies through dynamic play. This garden will grow and change as your child grows and changes.
