I started some seedlings over the weekend, inside with the help of my 3-year-old daughter. This gots us started into gardening way before any planting can happen outside, plus gives us a jumpstart on the harvest season by almost 1-2 months. Last year we planted outside in the middle of March in raised beds covered with frost cloth. By the end of April, we had tons of arugula, kale, collards, lettuces to eat and many different radishes to pull out. You’ll be surprised at how excited children are to pull out a beautiful rose colored radish and their excitement to eat them right there on the spot.
It’s truly amazing when I hear from a parent of one of the students I teach, tell me how their child has come home and role played an entire lesson to them. This is how it works. The kids teach the parents and there is no struggle surrounding vegetables and getting their kids to try new things. Children are innately curious, and in a workshop or classroom setting are eager and excited to try anything new.
I’m excited to announce a new Garden Starter Workshop for families. It will be held at Bosnar Center for Health located at 2462 Yonge Street, 2nd Floor on Sunday March 26th at 10am. Please follow the link below for more information.
