Unique Learning Laboratory is Giving City Kids the Opportunity to Explore Sustainable Agriculture

In the past eight years, City Growers has expanded their opportunities and reach, offering Summer Camp, professional development, and free workshops. However, it is the child’s newfound understanding and curiosity that truly helps measure progress.

Learning with our Senses

I wonder if the process of learning and discovering with our senses isn’t really what makes us human, what makes our life worthwhile.  Perhaps this is how as humans we evolved our ‘big’ brains, our specialized neural networks.  Maybe in exploring the word with our senses and trying to make sense of it all, we developed language in order to tell stories,  we developed writing in order to keep records, and in the process we advanced our social group from tribes into culture and from culture into civilizations.
