This collaboration will blend garden-based education for both preschoolers and college students. This meaningful garden project will teach both young children and college nutrition students about how food is grown and the importance of organic agriculture. Lesson topics will include: plant basics, composting, vegetable production, pollinators, soils and nutrient density.
The goals of the HEN Garden Lab program are to provide undergraduate nutrition students with quality hands-on experiences in sustainable agriculture, while teaching gardening and healthy eating habits for preschoolers. Long term, this project will prepare nutrition students to incorporate sustainable agriculture into their professional practice while also increasing exposure to fresh fruits and vegetables among young children.
