KidsGrow, developed by NGIA and targeted at primary school children, was launched to the industry in 2006. Designed to encourage the industry to work with schools to incorporate gardening into the school curriculum, the toolkit was developed in collaboration with educators to create a fun, hands‐on learning experience to introduce Australian kids to the pleasure and benefits of gardening.
Based on sustainable gardening principles, the toolkit has 10 clear steps that need to be followed as part of experiential learning process. The Kit includes design plans for themed gardens such as the Seasonal Colour Garden, Australian Habitat, Munch and Crunch and Waterwise Sensory Maze garden as well as practical gardening tips and hints.
The vision behind the KidsGrow project is: Every school a garden, every child a gardener, every plant a learning experience
