UCCC’s seven gardens stretch across our 17,000 square foot Adventure Playground and the Infant/Toddler Playground. The Seed to Table Program at UCCC fosters the importance of healthy eating, supports our nutrition program, and engages children and families in gardening and outdoor learning. Our program also teaches children:
· the importance of soil,
· how to plant vegetables,
· how to care for and grow vegetables,
· how to tell when food is ripe,
· how to harvest crops, and more.
When our produce is ripe, children harvest it and share with friends; teaching them empathy and compassion.
