Gardening in Montessori preschool education in Japan is important because it teaches children about the natural world, encourages responsibility and care for living things, and promotes healthy eating habits.

A preschool learning environment that could be created to teach gardening could include a designated outdoor space with raised garden beds, child-sized tools, and a composting area. The space could also include a sensory garden with plants that have different textures, smells, and colors.

Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include planting seeds and observing their growth, learning about the different parts of a plant, exploring the life cycle of a plant, and using harvested produce to make healthy snacks. Children could also learn about the importance of pollinators and how to attract them to the garden. Additionally, lessons could incorporate cultural traditions related to gardening and agriculture
