Relaxation

There is nothing better than getting in some relaxation. Gardening has shown to reduce the levels of stress in humans each day. Gardening has been used to help children who were rescued from abusive homes or children who might need special therapy forms. The self-esteem gets built up.

Science

Planting can teach children a few lessons in science. Lessons such as the plant life cycle and human interaction with the environment can be looked upon as you garden. Watching a plant go from seed to flower is an amazing thing for everyone to watch.

Life

Watching a seed grow to a tree can be just as amazing as watching a baby grow to childhood and to adulthood. Kids will grow to learn their plants and appreciate the life that comes out of them. The necessities for a plant such as water and sunlight can help children appreciate the needs of a human being such as water, food, and shelter.

Family Time

Gardening is the perfect way for the family to spend quality time together. You can play with one another as you plant the seeds and water the flowers. You can talk to each other as you go about the garden each day. You and your child can learn things about each other as you prune out those weeds!
