Are you working at a daycare or supporting multiple neighborhood kids at home due to the school closures? Many families have no choice and need to reach out to friends and family to take care of their kids as they go to work as a first responder, nurse, doctor, pharmacist, and more. If that is you, Back to the Roots is offering you and your “school of kids” FREE organic gardening kits + STEM curriculum.
Share about your story here, Back to the Roots will be selecting hundreds of our country’s most capacity-constrained and in-need educators to receive FREE bundles of their organic gardening kits to grow with your at-home students.
To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow! I love that quote. Back to the Roots is an organic indoor gardening company that I’ve worked with for years now on my blog and personally. They want to help kids continue to learn and grow during this coronavirus pandemic. This is an ideal time to teach children how to grow their own food, how to cook, and learn from STEM curriculum. Planting a seed and watching new life burst forth is exciting for kids – and adults alike. It helps us look forward to summer and better times.
Even if you are not an in-home educator babysitting a group of kids in your home during this pandemic, you and your kids can certainly enjoy growing your own gardens indoors with their gardening kits. Choose form Herbs & Veggies, Mushrooms, microgreens, water gardens, and more. If you are looking for almost-instant growth, choose the microgreens, you’ll have free edible greens in just days!
Once your garden starts to grow, take a picture and use #GiveOneGrowOne on social media. Back to the Roots’ #GiveOneGrowOne program will donate a kit to a kid of your choice so you can learn and grow together! Simply complete this form below to submit a photo of you with your indoor gardening kit and we’ll donate the same kit & custom curriculum to an elementary school classroom of your choice!
You can also follow along with me and my family over the next weeks to see how our Back to the Roots gardens grow. Once we set up our kits, we’ll upload a picture. We’ll share our progress with you over the weeks to come. I’d love to see your photos too!
