Abstract

Exposure to nature is critical for childhood development. It encourages creativity, problem solving, reduces anxiety, and can enhance academic performance. Turn Back Time in Paxton, MA offers farm and nature-based programs for children. Opportunities for learning are limited in the winter months, when crops are unable to grow. We engineered a water storage and delivery system for a greenhouse under construction to extend the growing season and learning opportunities. We developed STEM educational materials to expand learning in the greenhouse.
