Bruce Feiler has a radical idea: To deal with the stress of modern family life, go agile. Inspired by agile software programming, Feiler introduces family practices which encourage flexibility, bottom-up idea flow, constant feedback and accountability. One surprising feature: Kids pick their own punishments.
Tiny Footprints is excited to introduce an exciting new program for our little green thumbs. Sprouts with Seedlings is a comprehensive hands-on garden learning program where children get to engage with the growing process, tending to their own 400 Sq. Foot raised bed garden on site at Tiny Footprints.
During this once weekly session, children will get the opportunity to plant, cultivate harvest and even cook their very own vegetables, while getting lessons from a professional horticulture educator on plants, nature and healthy eating.
The American Horticulture Society rates early childhood gardening as one of the important education tools for bonding children with nature, as well as developing healthy attitudes about where good food comes from. Don't be surprised if your child comes home wanting to garden with you!
