Learning Objectives: 1. Participants will discuss ways to incorporate both indoor and outdoor gardening concepts with young children ages 2-8. 2. Participants will investigate a variety of ways to create engaging learning explorations to teach characteristics of living organisms and local ecosystems. 3.
