Planting fresh herbs in Spring is a satisfying experience for both adults and children alike.

Getting your hands in the soil, being outdoors and absorbing some unintentional exercise provides a host of benefits.

Planting your very own herbs not only give you a sense of satisfaction, but they also provide great nutrition and flavor to various dishes.

We recently had the opportunity to plant herbs and flowers at one our schools, and the children had a blast!

We first roughed up the soil, removed rocks and roots, finding worms, grubs and slugs along the way, then we dug some holes, and pressed our flowers and herbs into the soil. We finished off with a nice watering session to satiate the plants’ thirst, then cleaned up.

The students were so excited to see the finished product, while also having thoroughly enjoyed the process.

As the soil warms, and the sun shines, take this time to plant something in the soil. There is no better time than now!
