One of the things I love about my house is the fact that the yard is big enough for a garden. I enjoy growing my own vegetables each year for so many different reasons. The taste is so much better, I don’t have to worry about pesticides and chemicals on produce and I can save money on my weekly grocery bill. What more could any health-conscious mom on a budget ask for?
But in addition to all those benefits, planting a garden is also a great way to teach children about the importance of plants in our environment. And that’s why I love that EnviroKidz is so passionate about encouraging kids to learn about the earth and the way it sustains us and our animal friends. In fact, the company is doing that in a very fun way this year with a prize pack that will let kids get their hands dirty and grow something tasty!
One lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader is going to win an EnviroKidz EnviroKidz Gardening Kit containing a canvas gardening tote with trowel and fork, plantable kale seed paper, an EnviroKidz Activity Book, gardening themed recipe cards, two boxes of EnviroKidz cereal bars and three free product vouchers for Nature’s Path products, a $50 total value! To enter to win, just leave a blog comment about your favourite vegetable to grow in a garden!
Whether you plant a few quick-growing vegetables in a wooden window box or use a large area of your yard for a big family-feeding garden, growing your own fruits and vegetables is a fun and educational activity for parents and kids alike. Get your little ones involved by letting them pick a few favourite seeds to plant and help nurture a love of the earth and a respect for the bounty it provides to all of us!
