Gardening for Kids

Rutabaga Education, an award-winning garden-based learning company, is passionate about harnessing the benefits of gardening for kids.

The wholesome process of sowing seeds, tending to life, and learning a useful skill is a formative experience for young minds. Gardening fosters both physical and cognitive development in children, improving motor skills, deepening their understanding of where food comes from, and nurturing a sense of responsibility and patience.

The mission of our kids’ gardening education curriculum is to cultivate environmentally aware young citizens by providing eco-friendly kids’ gardening sets and educational resources. These resources are meant to encourage more families to grow food and nurture our precious planet.

From preschool to elementary levels, our initiatives involve building school gardens that align with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. This means you can trust in the quality and comprehensiveness of our resources as your children use them to learn more about the world around them. We aim to offer a one-stop destination for all your gardening needs and educational resources.
