Teaching Kids Gardening

The lives of children could be radically improved by teaching them horticultural skills and encouraging them to get active in the garden.
That’s the conclusion of a study commissioned by leading gardening charity The Royal Horticultural Society – and with the subject to be potentially included in the National Curriculum from September 2014, it looks like the next generation might leave school with the skills to tend a garden and grow their own vegetables.
If approved, the revised National Curriculum will see all pupils between the ages of five and 14 taught how to “cultivate plants for practical purposes, such as food or displays”, as well as how to plan and prepare healthy and wholesome meals.
