Many families today are not aware about where their food comes from – where it was grown, how it was prepared or manufactured or shipped to their favourite grocery stores. Old MacDonald is but a nursery song in primary school while the farm experience for most children is completely lost. What happens is that people don’t understand their food’s correlation to the land, their environment, and their health.
Through outdoor learning experiences, Plant a Seed Foundation gives children an opportunity to learn beyond their classrooms. As a structured activity, outdoor learning expertiences:
- Support a child’s social-emotional development
- Create appreciation of the seed-to-table food cycle
- Strengthen a child’s connection to the land
