Nature plays an important role in a child’s physical, social/emotional, and cognitive development. All Our Kin’s Garden Project is a two-year enrichment opportunity designed to enhance family child care programs’ outdoor curriculum, promote healthy eating, and encourage outdoor exercise for very young children in urban communities. Garden Project providers work with All Our Kin staff to build raised vegetable garden beds in their own back yards, and receive regular visits from an educational consultant who helps them learn how to garden and use the outdoors as an educational tool. As a result, children gain valuable outdoor learning experiences, and fresh, organic fruits and vegetables are introduced into their diets.
