11th Annual Design Institute
All About Food: Designing, Gardening, and Eating
October 2-4, 2012
NC Botanical Garden, Chapel Hill, NC
The joy of nurturing a plant that bears fruit from a small seed or gathering ripe, sweet berries for a snack is found in the edible landscape. Including gardening, cooking, and eating in the design of the early childhood outdoor environment offers multiple opportunities for children to understand the food cycle and to build the foundation for a lifetime of nutritious habits. Activities ranging from sensory exploration to science learning are easily planned in the edible garden. Join us at the 11th Annual Design Institute to discover new approaches and share your insights on creating environments and programs that contribute to healthy diet and a love of growing food.
Join us at the NC Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill for 3 days of presentations and outdoor sessions.
