Science: Learn To Grow

The Problem

My wish is to engage children and teach them the importance of knowing how to sustain themselves if needed. Teaching them that home grown food is more healthy and less expensive than going to the market to buy vegetables and flowers. It will also teach them about pesticides. Introduce them to eating more healthy with fruits and veggies.

Our Plan

I would like to purchase planters to hold the veggies; watermelon, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, okra and strawberries. The children and I will go to Lowes or Home Depot and purchase the plants, pots, dirt and fertilizer. Each child would choose and plant their plants individually with assistance. When the plant is matured and healthy the children can take the plants home with instructions to care for their plants.
