How a Garden Benefits Kids – VIDEO

Posted By:

Samantha Kurtzman-Counter, President of The Mother Company, shares the benefits of creating “an edible garden” with her son Jack.

It seems like many families living in cities are missing the opportunities and benefits of growing a garden.  However, growing a garden doesn’t need to be as hard as we think.  Furthermore, almost all of us would love to add more enriching activities to do with our kids.  We hope you will enjoy this video with our President and her son showing all of the many ways we can create a garden in our home.
