The SFB Garden Program was initiated to promote healthy lifestyles – it necessitates movement, develops bodily awareness, and increases fruit and vegetable consumption. It also helps demonstrate the principles of stewardship and improve the understanding of our place in our ecosystem. Gardens also foster a child’s connection to the natural world and increases amount of unstructured play and imagination. We have included time for arts and crafts to improve coordination and fine motor skills. We have a different lesson plan each day to include painting, planting, composting and creating tools & decor for the garden – watering cups, compost bins, rain water collection bin, scarecrows, bird houses, decorative rocks, etc.
