How can we best connect children to the earth that we want them to help repair?  Grow LaCrosse will share their tips to getting children interested and on board with helping reverse climate change. See examples of our mini science lessons plant a seed in young minds during farm camps and school garden classes. We hope our mini science lessons plant a seed in young minds that will encourage them to love nature and empower some of them to be the next generation of naturalists and scientists who will be in charge of healing and protecting our world’s environment.
