Green is a calming and stress-relieving colour. Looking at things that are green, gives our eyes rest. Close contact with soil fills us with positive energy and is soothing at the same time. Working in our garden also brings sweet delectable food to our table and a feeling of accomplishment and thrill to our soul.
Gardening develops a healthy attitude towards nature. It teaches children to appreciate her laws. They learn that nature will give us back only as much as we give to her.
Gardening gives children the opportunity to get to know the living world beneath their feet. They also learn about the life cycle of a plant, from the seed to fully grown.
