Seasonal Vegetable Garden Set up and Incursion Package
“The introduction of the veggie patch has extended and supported our sustainability focus with the children and families“
– Bellevue Preschool Highton
Helping children experience the benefits of fresh food
Provide a dynamic learning environment that helps children connect with and explore their natural environment. It provides ongoing opportunities to firstly introduce, and then to discuss sustainability topics with children as the garden is planted, grows and is ready for harvest.
Teaching children how to grow fresh food provides a strong foundation for healthy choices.
This program will assist your center to meet the requirements of Standard 3.3: Guide to National Quality Framework for Australian Early Childhood Education and Care.
The complete package:
I deliver a complete package of garden bed delivery, placement, assembly, and soil management supported by a hands on garden planting session with the children. In addition to planting the preschool garden each child will have the opportunity to plant their own seedling to take home, encouraging a transfer of learning and family involvement.
- I will deliver and set up the garden beds, filling them with a high quality organic soil mixture suited to growing vegetables and herbs
