Planting A Potato Patch With Uncle Bison

Children learn from growing things – they have fun – and gain special benefits! 🙂

  1. Responsibility – from caring for and tending plants.

  2. Understanding – as they learn about cause and effect (for example, plants die without water, weeds compete with plants etc).

  3. Self confidence – from achieving their goals and enjoying the food they have grown.

  4. Love of nature – a chance to learn about the outdoor environment in a safe and pleasant place.

  5. Reasoning and discovery – as they learn about science, botany, nutrition and simple construction.

  6. Physical activity – that is fun and productive.

  7. Cooperation – including shared play activity and teamwork.

  8. Creativity – finding new and exciting ways to grow food.

  9. Nutrition – learning about sources of fresh food.
