Gardening: Fostering Compassion in Children

Compassion fosters a feeling of connectedness and peace

Gardening is all about Compassion

Gardening is a wonderful way to connect children with nature and foster compassion.

Gardening is tending to the soil with care and patience.

 
Connected
Gardening gets kids touching and feeling the earth (soil). Insects and birds will visit their plants and vegetables.
 
 
If you do not have access to a garden or yard, you can grow tomatoes, herbs or even potatoes in pots indoors or on a patio.
 
 
By growing your own vegetables or herbs your children begin to see the work that goes into producing their food and where it comes from.
 
 
You then have the gift of being nourished by the harvest.
 
 
We are all connected
Another great way to witness the hard work that goes into producing food for the community  is by visiting local famers markets, orchards and local farms.
 
 
Last year we took part in the grow a row for your neighbours or local food bank. This is a beautiful and simple way for your family to show compassion.

This is such a beautiful and inspiring post, Marghanita! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Everything you shared rings true. Gardening teaches us all so much about stewardship and care for land, body and community, in such a simple and hands-on way. Thank you for the beautiful reminder!
