NLI Design Institute Focuses on Food: Designing, Gardening & Eating

AHA partner Natural  Learning Initiative will host the 11th Annual Design Institute Oct. 2-4 in Chapel Hill; the topic is All About Food: Designing, Gardening and Eating.

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. Join NLI 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. 

Activities ranging from sensory exploration to science learning can always be found in the edible garden. 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. This year’s Design Institute will focus on food in the outdoor learning environment.

Details on the agenda, speakers and registration are online at NLI’s website.
