Kidsafe NSW recognises the importance of gardening with children to build life skills, inspire creativity, grow and harvest food, role model safe practices and a respect for nature.
‘Grow Me Safely’ was developed to provide information for educators, parents and carers to engage children in gardening activities. The information provided is supported by injury data and statistics.
Gardening with children is promoted in the National Quality Framework for Education and Care Services, and the NSW Primary Syllabus.
