If you’re in the Sioux Falls area, you need to check out Sanderson Gardens in Brookings! We took the kids for their first strawberry and rhubarb picking experience. We don’t have a garden of our own, so it was a great opportunity for them to see how foods are grown, and also be able to harvest it on their own.
We talked about how different foods grow, what they need to be able to grow, and about how different foods grow during different times of the year. We will definitely be heading back in a August, when the raspberries will be ready!
Having children be part of picking out the food you are going to be eating, whether it’s at a garden or a grocery store, is a great way to get them involved and interacting with different foods!
