Why is The Garden Project so Important?

The Garden Project addresses four very important issues which are affecting the quality of our children's wellbeing

  • Children today are nature deprived, spending very little time outdoors in their natural environments making nature and living organisms alien to them;
  • Children today need to be given awareness of our planet's finite resources, as the custodians of our planet;
  • As Richard Louv rightly said “for the young food is from Venus and farming is from Mars”, children today often having no connection with the origin of their food;
  • With the growing rate of child obesity it is key for children to develop healthy eating habits and have a more balanced diet which include fruit and vegetables;
