Gardening for Families:  Kids Grow

Last weekend we volunteered with Calgary’s Kids Grow program.  Bringing families together in the garden is a great way to teach young and old(er) alike about garden related activities and all the benefits it has to offer.

Here’s a bit about Kids Grow organization:

Kids Grow is a collaborative, community based program run by volunteers. The goal of Kids Grow is to involve children in community gardening, to increase gardening and food production knowledge, to promote healthy and sustainable food choices, build environmental awareness and create a sense of community. We are currently running programming in the spring/summer in the Sunnyside community. Our program runs every Saturday morning from June 6th to August 29th from 10am-12pm at Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Garden. Every week, we take care of our garden, take part in an exciting workshop, enjoy a delicious healthy snack and then participate in some fun crafts, games and activities! We are a family gardening program welcoming children of all ages, adult supervision is required at all times.
Bring your kids by this summer and have fun in the garden!
