Gardening with Tamariki Programmes
The Gardening with Tamariki Programme supports young children to learn about the whole process involved with growing their own food, from sowing a seed through to harvesting, preparing and eating the produce on a seasonal basis. The programme operates in Christchurch and surrounding areas and is run on a fortnightly basis. The programme runs for a minimum of three months, however, ideally it would be an on-going year round addition to your centre curriculum.
Each session is one hour long, starting with a story or similar, and followed by hands ongardening experiences. It includes a range of sustainably-linked garden related activities to support young children's learning.
This includes, but is not limited to:
- sowing seeds
- planting and caring from seedlings
- making their own compost
- investigations of what lives in the soil
