Our Junior Gardner 8 week course is starting the month of October at the Desert Willow Garden! The junior gardener course offers active & engaging connections to academics from science and math to nutrition and literacy. Students will remember more information from this course due to the chance for them to design their own experiments and engage in their own style of learning!
Gardening helps capture kids interest in nature, introduces healthful foods, shows ways to give back to the community and teaches students that food we eat comes from places outside of the grocery store.
