Growing Minds

We educate and empower youth to grow food everywhere!

Teaching children to seek out healthy food choices has reached a new height of awareness in recent years. However, there continues to be a struggle for parents and children living at or below the poverty level to access affordable yet healthy food on a long term sustainable basis. What happens when families no longer have access to healthy options or the healthy options become economically impossible to sustain? In order to be truly sustainable, an initiative has to continue to be sustained even in the midst of poverty. What could be more sustainable than teaching children that they can grow their own healthy food with little or no land. In order for healthy eating to be truly sustainable, children must learn not only to consume but to create healthy food options. Our program teaches kids to grow healthy food with simple supplies, at a low cost and anywhere!

Great article recirculating about what we’re working towards with our programming! It can get confusing with terminology, but the aim remains the same! β€œThe terms forest school, nature-based preschool, forest kindergarten, outdoor preschool and nature school are often used interchangeably in the U.S. to describe a type of schooling that revolves around getting young children outside and interacting hands-on with nature. Although still a novelty in North America, these alternative preschool forms have been around since the 1950s in Scandinavia and are today popular across Europe. Germany alone has over 1,500 so called waldkindergartens, or forest kindergartens.”
