Grow Your Own Food - Beginners
Many children especially in urban areas don’t know where their food comes from or what their food is. Only through practical farming, children of all ages can be taught life skills like raising food, working hard, communication, caring for others and much more. Kids who grow and raise their own food are more likely to waste less and eat a greater variety of foods. When they are growing their own food, children will learn to control every step of the food growing process - from seed selection, soil management all the way to harvesting and composting.
This 45 days program will connect your kids to the wonder and beauty of the farm through food, nutrition and farming. Join this amazing experience to build their interest in vegetables. The course will help them get started with their own mini farm. A Starter Kit will be sent to the kids.

About Green Panther
Green Panther is an initiative that designs activities & learning kits related to nature & environment for kids. Green Panther wants to be a national & international movement to connect children, families and communities to the natural world by giving them a common platform & building a bridge between kids/parents to environmentalists, naturalists, educators and people working with nature and animals. In this way, we will also be building a community with people sharing common goal and help us spread the awareness.
Shruti realized while teaching her daughter that there was nothing that taught the kids about environment. Shruti wanted her child as well as other children to enjoy and learn about nature. So, she started conducting workshops in residential societies. That’s how Green Panther was born. Green Panther engages methods where kids get to learn from nature experientially. They learn to identify animals by paw prints, tell time by the position of sun and shadow, make seed bombs and grow food.
