Botanical Gardens- Creative Ways to Create Little Foodies

There are hundreds of Botanical Gardens across North America, and if you are lucky enough to live near one, you've most likely already experienced this dreamlike escape into nature. Aside from their exotic flowers, majestic trees and whimsical canopied pathways, many of these botanical gardens have herb and vegetable gardens. This makes for the perfect trip for your budding little foodies! Encourage your kids to talk about the vegetables, how they grow and what they smell like. Allow for lots of gentle touching and observing. If real food is what your kids know, it'll be what they love!


















These photos were taken in the veggie and herb garden at the Descanso Gardens in Southern California. http://www.descansogardens.org 

We'd love to hear about your botanical garden experience!
