April 24:  PROVIDER APPRECIATION MEETING  (in person at Clements Community Center)

“My First Garden: Growing Plants with Young Children”

Not everyone needs to have a green thumb to learn how to grow plants with young children. In this 1.5-hour training, participants will gain the confidence and skills they need to support container gardening in an early childhood setting. Participants will learn best practices in plant care and how to shop for plants at a local garden supply store. Participants will also be able to learn firsthand how to successfully plant a seedling and support its growth. Finally, participants will discuss appropriate ways to engage young children in gardening. Break out your tools, and let’s get messy! Participants will receive gardening resources and materials, and they will leave with their own container garden. Presented by ECHO 1 ½ hours
