Brian Attends the Growing Up WILD Workshop at Common Ground


Growing up WILD is an early childhood education program that builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them. Through a wide range of activities and experiences, Growing up WILD provides an early foundation for developing positive impressions about the natural world and lifelong social and academic skills.

This workshop provided a foundation of early childhood activities that educators can use to teach students outside using an educational garden space and/or outdoor classroom. The activities were nutrition and garden themed and the different lessons connected to literacy, math, art and music and included healthy snack ideas.
