    COLUMBUS, Ohio – Gardening is a great option for keeping your children off social media and in the outdoors. And it can teach as well as entertain.

    “When children grow their food in a garden, they are much more invested in their food sources. I have seen the excitement that children experience in a garden lead to one-on-one opportunities for them to connect on a personal level with the adult leaders in the garden,” said Sue Hogan, 4-H educator for Ohio State University Extension in Franklin County.
