Children at New Life Head Start build a garden

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Preschoolers in San Diego are learning how to grow, by building a garden.

At the New Life Head Start Child Development Center, the Western Growers Foundation gave the school a grant to help them expand their garden and teach kids all about the fall harvest.

School representatives say teaching kids about the environment at an early age is key to early development.

"Early education is a critical element in a child's success. So being able to be exposed to the environment and what the environment can do to us at an early age is very beneficial to children's education," said Damon Carson with Neighborhood House Association.

The Western Growers Foundation is a public charity that supports innovative nutrition programs to create healthy communities. It has provided funding to about 700 schools over the last few years.
