Gardening in Froebel preschool education in Canada is important because it teaches children about the natural world, promotes healthy eating habits, and encourages physical activity.

Preschool learning environments that could be created to teach gardening could include a designated outdoor space with raised garden beds, child-sized tools, and a compost bin. Indoor spaces could include a sensory table with soil, seeds, and plants for exploration and observation.

Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include planting and caring for seeds, learning about the life cycle of plants, exploring different types of fruits and vegetables, and creating healthy snacks using produce from the garden. Children could also learn about the importance of pollinators and create habitats for bees and butterflies. Additionally, gardening could be incorporated into other subject areas such as math (measuring plant growth) and language arts (writing about their gardening experiences)
