Children are in the spring of their lives. BSCAH is kicking off another session of our Healthy Bloomers program to foster their growth toward a healthy, successful future. According to community profiles of our area, adults are more likely to be obese compared to the rest of Brooklyn and New York City. It is crucial that we engage children at an early age and lay the groundwork for healthy habits and lifestyles. Our Healthy Bloomers after-school program for children ages 6-11 years aims to do just that. Lessons increase children’s knowledge about the ecosystem, healthy eating, and food cultivation. Lessons are designed to reinforce science, math, reading and analytical skills, and incorporate dynamic, hands-on learning, games, and visits to our own Urban Farm.
