Teaching Children to Grow

The Sage Garden offers a series of home-based programs to educate and encourage children to grow fruit, herbs and vegetables and to learn about their garden environment. Our programs aim to bring the joys of gardening to children in their own homes, to nurture a sense of wonder, excitement and empowerment through growing food that is healthy for us, in a way that is healthy and sustainable for our environment. The Sage Garden brings the fun of gardening to your home.

What We Do

The Sage Garden provides activities to suit all ages so that everyone can feel part of the learning and growing process. Children will spend time planting seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs by seedlings and seeds, building garden structures, mulching, watering, discussing beneficial and harmful bugs and of course having fun! The real value is that the learning is fun, creative, healthy and family oriented. Your children will gain invaluable gardening knowledge, and through this they will also learn about patience, caring and responsibility – and what’s better than feasting on home grown strawberries, tomatoes, peas and so much more as their reward!

The Sage Garden’s basic program includes a one day workshop of garden-bed construction and development, with a one day follow-up session.
Each program is tailor-made to suit the individual needs of each child and family.
The program consists of, but is not limited to, four components:

  1. The supply and delivery of all materials (soil, mulch, seedlings, seeds)
  2. The construction and planting of the garden beds (working with existing garden beds or with our own custom built beds or garden collars)
  3. Educational material and exercises during the establishment phase (we can work with up to five children in developing a garden)
  4. Follow-up and further education one month after the initial planting

Do you have a veggie garden already but you just need a little guidance? We are more than happy to pop over to your house to help you with your seasonal planting and give you some tips and tricks to try out. These are hour long sessions $100 plus materials (if you would like us to bring seedlings etc) The aim is we give you the skills to have a flourishing vegetable garden!
