The Preschool Gardening Project Skowhegan Maine
The Skowhegan Maine Preschool Gardening Project positively impacted several children and families with over 65 children, their siblings, parents and many grandparents touched by the enthusiasm of the four-year-old in their family! For several families, having a yard for planting is limited. Living in an apartment building with little or shared space restricts the opportunity for garden planting. The container approach to gardening showed children and families how to grow nourishing food without a lot of space. This smiling preschooler was extremely excited to bring home this tomato plant to share with her family. She learned how to take care of her plant and what it would need to grow. She and her family members also learned what they could do with the tomatoes once they were ready to harvest. The rewards of her labor are easily expressed on her face!
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
