Connecting children to healthy foods
Learning about healthy, tasty foods that can be grown at home is an influential part of nutrition education. The Children’s Garden at Cal Poly Pomona is designed to allow kids to ‘Learn by Doing’ as they experience first-hand how plants grow through fun and interactive demonstrations. Field trips also offer innovative ways for students to create a home garden even if you only have room for a few pots and containers. Children that learn at a young age the value of working the soil, planting seeds and harvesting a great tasting tomato are much more likely to explore other fresh vegetables at home.
The Children’s Garden Outreach Program is looking for donors interested in helping to provide funds to assist schools to send their students on a field trip to Cal Poly Pomona. Of special interest is to serve children in underprivileged areas who would otherwise be unable to visit. Your assistance is a great way to build healthy minds and bodies..
