Earth Heart Growers offers a garden curriculum that reaches students from three years of age through adolescence. Students learn to grow their own food and understand the food cycle from seed to plate to composting. Ninety-five percent of the produce is grown by the children from seed, allowing them to see the full process and understand the different seasons for growing and planting. They also learn to identify the proper time for harvest.
The children also receive science instruction, learning about sustainability, agriculture, biology, botany, astronomy and more. Experimentation and data collection are part of their gardening time. Maintenance of the garden is also their responsibility, including weeding, replenishing the garden beds, composting and watering plants along with promoting peace and care for the earth with various in-school campaigns. Our aim is to cultivate a beautiful future rooted in the hearts of our very own children.
