It can also teach us important life lessons such as sustainability and the limited nature of resources.

Gardening can be a fun activity to engage in with other family members including children. It will enable young children to identify with colours, patterns, and names of vegetables and fruits. On the other hand for elder children, it can be helpful to understand and develop abstract traits like responsibility, nurturance etc.
