Happy National Garden Month! We certainly are enjoying the Spring weather and in honor of it being National Garden Month, we wanted to share some gardening tips and resources for you. Gardening is a great way to bring together family as there are so many ways to get the kids involved. It’s a perfect opportunity to have the conversation with your kids about healthy eating.
First, here are three simple gardening tips:
Tip 1: Reap the benefits.
Gardening provides fresh air, exercise and results in healthy fruits and vegetables to eat!
Tip 2: Build a container garden.
You can successfully grow a variety of vegetables and herbs in a small space using a pot with holes on the bottom.
Tip 3: Start with herbs.
Place a pot in a sunny spot and plant herbs like rosemary and basil to add a fresh taste to your meals.
