The Learning Garden
This is where humans learn about common characteristics that they share with the plant world and animal world. How we are connected and share a common need for water, air, sun and soil. In the Garden we learn to recognize plants as living entities that come in different forms. Humans develop critical thinking and observation skills when observing the life cycles of a garden. From seed to edible harvested plant.
We begin to observe and identify similarities in life processes between ourselves and other living things.
Recognize that plants, animals, and humans, as living things, have similar needs from the same life force energies.
When making observation of daily and seasonal changes in a living environment (garden), people become aware of changes that can occur within it, and the cycles that affect all life.
Introducing people to the concept of growing food, gardens us to make informed decisions for living well, related to personal health practices in how we care for and nourish ourselves. Spiritually & Physically
