Lion Cub Scouts learn about gardening and where food comes from while working on the Ready Set Grow adventure. They also plant their own container garden.
Requirements for the Ready Set Grow Lion Adventure
- Visit with an individual who can demonstrate different ways to garden (outside, greenhouse, container, etc.) and the basic skills needed to garden.
- Learn where the food we eat comes from.
- Plant a small container garden
Resources for the Lion Ready, Set, Grow Adventure
Making a soda bottle terrarium is a fun gardening activity.
One way to get them interested in playing in the dirt and in healthy eating habits is to plant a pizza garden. They might be more willing to try different fresh foods if they harvest them from plants they tended.
