Growing their own vegetables gives children the opportunity to explore all the parts of the growing process. It gets them involved in the natural world and teaches them to appreciate the natural environment. It also helps them to develop and interest in fresh foods.
In the garden they learn the role of wildlife and how plants are dependant on pollinators such as bees and butterflies for their survival.
In this project students will study and compare the lifecycle of the plants in their gardens. They will note the effects of climate on the choice of foods that we grow. They will explore the effects of slogs, snails, earthworms, bees and butterflies on the garden.
