Wherever garden grow, kids grow too!
Too many children and families living in places where they don’t have access to enough fresh and healthy food. And far too many of them have never had the opportunity to see, taste, or eat some of the garden’s best-tasting, good-for-you produce.
Research shows that children who consume fresh food are healthier as a result. That’s why we are working on smart garden Agro2o an automated hydroponic system that will be accessible to anybody anywhere to grow fresh food across the country to teach children, families, and communities how to grow their own fresh produce—for life.
The Importance of Gardens for Early Childhood: Hands-on experiences in the garden provide young children with a multitude of life-enhancing benefits, including:
- Access to healthy food
- Increased physical activity
- Reduced risk of obesity
- Improved behavior
- Decreased stress and anxiety
- Positive social integration
- Improved relationships
- Greater engagement with learning
- Better academic performance
