For Parents

Michael & Megan’s Kids Corner is also a gateway to encourage further exploration:

  1. Trace the pathway from a seed to a serving of food on your own table
  2. Visit a farmers’ market or local grocery store and discover what happens with plants after they’re harvested
  3. Visit a local farm to learn about how plants are grown and harvested as crops, and how a farm is operated
  4. Learn about various nutrition labels such as organic or non-GMO on products in your own kitchen and what they tell us
  5. Support your existing school/community garden program or be part of a movement to establish such gardens
  6. Discover the many places seeds can be grown from the classroom, to back/front yards, to containers/living walls/balconies, to greenhouses and farms
  7. Talk about concepts such as: healthy eating; eating locally; backyard/urban farming

The list is limited only by your child’s interest and imagination.
