Gardening in preschool education is important because it teaches children about the natural world, promotes healthy eating habits, and encourages physical activity. It also helps children develop important life skills such as responsibility, patience, and problem-solving.

To create a preschool learning environment that teaches gardening, educators could set up a small garden area with child-sized tools and materials. They could also incorporate nature-based activities such as exploring the outdoors, observing plants and animals, and learning about the different seasons.

Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include planting seeds and watching them grow, learning about the different parts of a plant, exploring the different types of soil and how they affect plant growth, and creating art projects inspired by nature. Educators could also incorporate cooking activities using the fruits and vegetables grown in the garden, teaching children about healthy eating habits and where their food comes from
