Family Garden Tips ... from Montana Team Nutrition

Family Garden Tips ... from Montana Team Nutrition

“Montana Team Nutrition is honored to be part of the Nancy’s Garden project,” says Katie Bark, Program Director. “Eating the veggies grown in Nancy’s Garden is a great way to celebrate with delicious foods students have grown themselves. Here’s how families can get involved at home by gardening with their kids this summer.”

Garden together in a container at home:

Like the 4th graders involved in Nancy’s Garden, families can enjoy planting vegetables in containers when growing plants outdoors is not practical or when yard space is limited.

Garden together in the backyard:

A family that gardens together can stay healthy together. Backyard gardens provide plenty of opportunities for fun outdoor activities - and a “sneaky” way to get kids to eat more vegetables. When children plant and take care of vegetables, they are much more likely to eat the products - sometimes before they even get to the kitchen.

Garden together in a community plot or schoolyard:

Many Montana communities now offer communal gardening spaces, like the long running Garden City Harvest in Missoula. MSU Extension provides information on finding or starting a garden in your town and many other gardening topics on their websiteand through local county Extension offices.
