In 2014, Brooklyn Botanic Garden marks the centennial of its pioneering Children’s Garden, where kids ages 2 to 17 put their hands in the soil and learn by doing. Here children sow, tend, and harvest their own crops and flowers and absorb important lessons about responsibility, cooperation, and the importance of plants in our lives. This special program has sparked a lifetime of curiosity about nature and devotion to the environment for generations of local families.
This video offers a lyrical, child’s-eye view of the Children's Garden experience. For more information, visit bbg.org/learn.
