Spending time Outside & Gardening LessonsChildren have a innate interest in all things natural. They love playing with mud, planting seeds and watching them grow, watching caterpillars and butterflies, digging up buried treasure in the form of carrots, beets or potatoes, working out a clever deference system against slugs and snails ... the joys and adventures involved in gardening just carry on and on!
Our backyard with a playing and gardening areas
This summer, we took on a special job: we will grow our own vegetables!
We picked out the seeds, helped to plant and water them.
We can't wait to see how big our vegetables will grow!
One day in August we had a great gardening lesson with our neighbours Livio and Minke Mazzacato, learning how plants grow, digging up different vegetables, and checking their roots and leafs.
